FDA Panel Recommends Emergency Use Authorization of Pfizer COVID Vaccine

Updated: Dec 12, 2020


What Happened:

  • On Thursday, the FDA's advisory committee recommended that the agency grant emergency use authorization of Pfizer and BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine.

  • Now the advisory committee for the Center for Disease Control must also vote on whether to use the Pfizer vaccine. The committee is expected to vote on Sunday.

  • If the CDC committee supports the emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine as well, vaccines could start rolling out to citizens as soon as 24-48 hours afterwards.
