Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed
the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recommendation to grant full approval to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for individuals age 18 and older.
“We now have another fully approved COVID-19 vaccine,” said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky. “If you have been waiting for approval before getting vaccinated, now is the time to join the nearly 212 million Americans who have already completed their primary series. CDC continues to recommend that people remain up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines, including getting a booster shot when eligible.”
