The vaccine invented by the pharma giant has been approved as the second vaccine against coronavirus in the United States. The second vaccine was vaccinated a week after the Pfizer-Bioentech vaccine was approved. An advisory panel from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Thursday recommended the vaccine for emergency use. On that basis, the FDA approved the vaccine on Friday. The British media BBC reported this.
The United States has the highest number of coronavirus outbreaks and deaths in the world. The death toll from the corona in the country crossed three lakhs earlier this week.
On Thursday, members of the expert panel voted 20-0 to approve the modern vaccine. According to him, the vaccine is not risky for people 18 and older.
Earlier last week, the expert panel recommended approval of the Pfizer-Bioentech vaccine for emergency use. The following day it was approved for use in the country. It is now being implemented.
Last week, the modern vaccine was described as 94 percent safe and effective. The United States has agreed to purchase 200 million doses of the vaccine. With FDA approval, 6 million doses are ready for transport.
US President Donald Trump has expressed his displeasure on Twitter after the modern vaccine was approved. “Congratulations, the modern commentary is now available,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, on Friday, US Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence publicly administered the Pfizer Kovid-19 vaccine. He took this initiative to encourage people to get vaccinated.
