Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine receives full approval from FDA

After a full review of the scientific data, the Food and Drug administration (FDA) has provided full approval for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for those 16 years of age and older. It is no longer under emergency use authorization for adults. It is also still available for those aged 12 to 16 under the emergency use authorization.
