FDA approval of Pfizer vaccine paves the way for more vaccine mandates

Eight months after authorizing the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use in the USA, the Food and Drug Administration issued its full stamp of approval.

Now that the companies' detailed, so-called biologics license application has been granted, it's likely that vaccination will be required by many companies, schools and other entities.

Monday, President Joe Biden called on companies, nonprofit groups, government agencies and schools to "step up vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people."

Vaccinations allowed people in this country to stop worrying about diseases such as smallpox, polio, measles, mumps and rubella, he said, and vaccines can help do the same for COVID-19.

"It only makes sense to require a vaccine to stop the spread of COVID-19," Biden said at a midday news conference. "With today's FDA full approval, there's another good reason to get vaccinated."

The FDA decision clears the way for the companies to market their vaccine, which is not permitted without full licensure. It may launch a race for booster shots, allowing doctors to prescribe extra Pfizer-BioNTech shots "off label" to anyone they think should get one.

The FDA confirmed late last year through a more streamlined evaluation process that the vaccine, from pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and its partner, German startup BioNTech, was safe, effective and could be reliably produced.

The review of the 340,000-page license application was completed in just 97 days by FDA staff working "night and day," said Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, which approves vaccines.

"We completed this in about 40% of the normal clock time for a submission of this magnitude," he said.

The license application was three times the size of the emergency use authorization submission, which weighed in at 110,000 pages.

The companies have manufactured more than 2 billion doses, more than 200 million of which were administered in the USA, the most of any of the three vaccines allowed for use in the country.

The full license includes four more months of efficacy and safety data, confirming trial results and detailing manufacturing processes.

The Pfizer-BioNTech emergency use authorization was based on clinical trials involving about 37,000 people. The full approval was based on study results involving more than 44,000 people followed for six months.

Is there any logical argument against mandates? The sooner this is over the better it is for everyone.

I recently saw a video where a doctor with a long list of accomplishments warned a school board that those who take the jab will die within a few years if not sooner. Even the inventor of the mRNA procedure, now recommends against taking it. They're all bucking Big Pharma who is making big bucks and doesn't care because they have immunity from the damage the jab causes.

Yes, and there are people with PhD's in science who will tell you humans walked the earth with dinosaurs 6,000 years ago.

Nutjobs are to be found everywhere.

The only thing worth paying attention to are the positions that the vast majority of scientists converge on, and what you've described ain't it by a million light years.

Fk! Vaccines drug shit Boosters!
Im An Extremist Anti-Vaccines!
That Doctor that destroyed all that shit had it right!

Without strife, your victory has no meaning.
Without strife, you do not advance.
Without strife, there is only stagnation.

Re: FDA approval of Pfizer vaccine paves the way for more vaccine mandates

If it is found to be safe and it can prevent millions of potential deaths then there is no reason it shouldn't be mandated.
