The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted full approval for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The FDA has also granted emergency use authorizations for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. These vaccines have passed independent review by medical experts in the Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, as part of the Western States Pact. Visit Washington State Department of Health for additional information.
