FDA Commissioner Grants EUA to Pfizer Vaccine

FDA Commissioner Grants EUA to Pfizer Vaccine Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine has been granted emergency use authorization (EUA) by the US FDA. The New York Times, referring to an anonymous authoritative source, reports that FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn was under immense pressure from President Trump to allow EUA for the vaccine, with his chief of staff asking the commissioner to resign if he didn’t do so immediately. Pfizer has been paid in advance to supply 100 million doses by March-end, which will be free of charge to the public. Now, the company’s goal is to get the first three million doses within the week to healthcare workers and nursing home residents. The vaccines will be shipped from distribution sites in Michigan and Wisconsin in boxes packed with dry ice to keep them at minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit, along with a tracking device and thermal probe to ensure the required temperature. A major medical supplier, McKesson Corporation, is sending syringes, alcohol pads, face shields, and other supplies to the designated vaccine administration sites.
