The covid vaccines have been making headlines a lot lately and they have been also creating all kinds of controversial subjects involving efficiency, potential side effects, and more.
Now, it’s been just revealed that the FDA cleared Moderna, and Pfizer covid boosters have been approved for all the US adults.
CNBC notes that the approval comes about two months later after scientists advising the FDA rejected the administration’s original plans to start distributing boosters to all adults the week of Sept. 20. It’s also important to mention the fact that they cited a lack of data supporting the third doses.
One other important thing to mention is that the FDA Acting Commissioner Janet Woodcock also cleared the doses without the usual public meeting to review new data submitted by the companies in the last week.
CNBC notes that Moderna resubmitted its application just two days ago. The companies announced the decision Friday morning.
“This emergency use authorization comes at a critical time as we enter the winter months and face increasing COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations across the country,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement.

This allowed for little public scrutiny of Pfizer’s burgeoning power, even as demand surges amid new negotiations for one of the world’s most sought-after products.
