FDA Grants Full Approval to Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine

Aug 24, 2021

On August 23, 2021 the FDA granted full approval to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people age 16 and older– further proving that the vaccine is safe and effective.

The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.

More than 204 million of the Pfizer shots have been administered, according to data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you have not received the vaccinated yet, please do it now. It could save your life and the lives of those you love. To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment for yourself or your loved one, please contact Cornerstone Family Healthcare at 845-563-8000 or register online by clicking here.

“The FDA’s approval of this vaccine is a milestone as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Acting FDA Commissioner, Dr. Janet Woodcock.

“While this and other vaccines have met the FDA’s rigorous scientific standards for emergency use authorization, as the first FDA approved Covid-19 vaccine, the public can be confident that this vaccine meets the FDA’s gold standard for safety, effectiveness and manufacturing quality that we require for an approved product,” said Dr. Woodcock. ” While millions of people have already safely received COVID-19 vaccines, we recognize that for some, the FDA approval of a vaccine may now instill additional confidence to get vaccinated.”
