FDA Grants Full Approval To Moderna COVID Vaccine

Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine has received full approval by the FDA. This comes after the Pfizer shot received full approval last August.

From the Washington Post:

Moderna’s vaccine, now known as Spikevax, was previously available under emergency use authorization and is the second coronavirus vaccine to get full FDA approval. Pfizer and BioNTech’s product was approved in August.

Moderna, a biotechnology company, said Monday that Spikevax has been approved by regulators in more than 70 countries and that more than 800 million doses were shipped worldwide last year.
