The One Bermuda Alliance is today pleased to learn that the Federal Drug Agency has approved the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, the first full approval.
This approval, for persons aged 16 and older, signifies a key public health achievement. Emergency approval still applies to those between 12-15.
The FDA said today upon notification of the approval ” the FDA approval of a vaccine may now instill additional confidence to get vaccinated.”
We hope this proves true in Bermuda as we still have not reached the desired vaccination rates. Those who have some hesitancy should take comfort in this major announcement as we continue to tackle the impact of the virus on our community.
This vaccines offers significant protection in the ongoing battle to tackle Covid 19 and the announcement by the FDA today is a clear indicator of the confidence people can have in it.”
