Fauci hopes US regulators fully approve COVID-19 shots by mid-August

Global News published this video item, entitled “Fauci hopes US regulators fully approve COVID-19 shots by mid-August” – below is their description.

Top U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Friday that he hopes U.S. regulators could as soon as the middle of August to start granting full approval for the use of COVID-19 vaccines, which already are authorized on an emergency basis.

Formal approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) would give physicians the ability to prescribe a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to people with weakened immune systems on an off-label basis, Fauci said during an interview with Reuters.

Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE as well as Moderna Inc have filed with the FDA to ask for full approval for their two-dose vaccines. Johnson & Johnson Inc has not yet requested full approval for its one-dose COVID-19 shot.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the White House, said full approval by the FDA could also help spur more Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine as it might reduce their fears about the safety of the shot and make local officials more comfortable about implementing vaccine mandates.

  • In This Story: Allergy

    Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

    Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

    Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

    Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
