FDA Approves Moderna Covid Vaccine for Emergency Use


What Happened:

  • On Friday, the US Food and Drug Administration formally approved Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use in the United States.

  • This will allow widespread distribution of the vaccine which will go to health care workers and residents and staff of long-term care facilities first.

  • The approval comes one week after the FDA gave emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine, making Moderna the second company to receive approval.

  • With the approval, officials say Moderna’s vaccinations can start being distributed early next week.
