  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: US FDA commissioner discusses COVID-19 vaccine approval” – below is their description.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Stephen Hahn spoke Saturday about the authorization of Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S., saying he was ready for a vaccination as soon as it’s available, and that he was “so proud of the work that our career scientists have done.”

    The FDA beat its own timeline and gave the green light to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine late Friday, with shipments expected to be sent across the country next week. The FDA gave its final approval to the vaccine on Saturday, after an advisory panel recommended on Thursday that the shot be given emergency authorization for use.

    The imminent arrival of a vaccine comes as the U.S. faces the worst surge yet in a pandemic that has now killed nearly 295,000 people and infected more than 15.6 million to date.
