Pfizer Covid vaccine has now received FULL approval by the FDA!

Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine wins full FDA approval, potentially persuading the hesitant to get a shot

Federal regulators Monday granted full approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine a milestone that could help increase inoculation rates and spark a wave of vaccine mandates by employers and universities amid a surge of new cases and hospitalizations fueled by the ferocious delta variant, according to two individuals with direct knowledge of the decision.

1. The willfully hesitant will continue to complain about how the vaccines were 'rushed'

and probably that Biden forced the FDA to fully approve them.

And they'll still push for monoclonal treatment, which is still only EUA by the FDA

9. Watched a clip from the Saturday Trump rally on CNN yesterday.

The reporter asked a Trumper if they'd get the vaccine once it was FDA approved. She said "Nope, gonna need at least 10 years of trials before I'll consider it safe."

You can't fix stupid.

11. And WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?

They're being marched off to death camps. Can't we at least give them the benefit of a vaccine?

12. There's millions and millions of unused doses around, plenty enough for everyone that wants one now

Too many fully vaxxed are getting Covid, protection is waning against Delta

18. Where's the science saying it's safe to send them to school, maskless? I haven't seen it.

We can't march them to schools, many to their death (or death of their family members), without vaccinations. Same as measles, mumps, etc. If we are slow collecting the data, we have to be slow re-opening schools.

20. Fact, pediatric trials are ongoing, testing dosage, some have 1/3 adult dose for smaller kids

Pfizer and Modern are hopeful for vaccinations being available by the end of the year, that's the latest I heard

21. I looked up the studies; seems they are promising results by mid-2022 or 2023

The experiment with sending kids into COVID-infested schools is already producing results. As we see in the headlines lately.

14. And Fox is already questioning its reliability

since the approval process was too fast.

17. shout out to an unsung hero for this vaccine approval - Janet Woodcock

Trump loves to take/steal credit for a woman's work, and she was the real driving force behind "Operation Warp Speed". Now here she is bringing us full approval of this wonderful and safe vaccine.

https://www.fda.gov/about-fda/fda-organization/janet-woodcock

And yes, appointed as acting FDA head by our President Joseph R. Biden.
