FDA Panel Considers Approval for Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine | LIVE | NowThis

FDA PANEL TO VOTE ON APPROVING PFIZER’S COVID-19 VACCINE: An advisory panel to the Food and Drug Administration is meeting to discuss the emergency authorization for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. At the end of the nine hour session, the group of doctors and scientists will vote on whether they will recommend the FDA to authorize the vaccine for immediate use. Though the FDA is not required to follow the panel’s advice, it is highly expected to do so, which means that if the panel votes in support of the vaccine, the first doses could be shipped across the U.S. within days. This advisory panel’s meeting comes as the UK, which began inoculating people with the vaccine in question days ago, has already had to issue warnings to people who have a history of severe allergic reactions. However, positive reviews from other FDA scientists earlier this week suggests the vaccine will be approved. ‘The data presented in the briefing report were consistent with what we heard before and are really exciting,’ said Dr. William Moss, head of Johns Hopkins University’s International Vaccine Access Center. ‘Nothing that I see would delay an emergency use authorization.’
