The 22 members of the FDA’s Vaccine and Biologicals Advisory Committee all voted in favor of the vaccine, with only one abstention.
Moderna will thus become the second vaccine approved for emergency use, after Pfizer received the endorsement and the Americans began to be vaccinated.
Now the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to grant an emergency use authorization (US) imminently, which would make this vaccine the second to be approved in a Western country.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to follow the recommendation for the vaccine from Moderna and the National Institutes of Health.
Advisers to the FDA, voting 20 in favor and zero against, agreed that the benefits the vaccine provides outweigh the risks for those over 18 years of age.
