The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday signed off on an advisory panel’s recommendation to approve Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine — clearing the way for the first doses to be administered as soon a Monday, according to a report.
Dr. Robert Redfield accepted the recommendation of the agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices made during an emergency session on Saturday that the vaccine can be given to people 16 and older, CNN reported.
The Food and Drug Administration cleared the way for an emergency use of the coronavirus vaccine on Friday.
