COVID-19 Vaccine General Information
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fully approved the Pfizer (Comirnaty) COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 16 years and up, but remains under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for those 5 -15 years of age. The FDA fully approved the Moderna (Spikevax) COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 18 years and up. The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine still remains under EUA. Other COVID-19 vaccines that are in Phase II or III trials can be found through this COVID-19 vaccine tracker. The FDA will only give a COVID-19 vaccine an EUA if the current phase III trial data shows the vaccine is safe and has more benefits than risks.
