About COVID-19 vaccine

In the United States, there are currently three vaccines in use to prevent COVID-19. These vaccines were developed by Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. The federal government and partners (e.g., pharmaceutical companies) have been working since the pandemic started to make COVID-19 vaccines available as soon as possible.  Many more COVID-19 vaccine candidates are currently in development or under evaluation.

Due to the critical need for COVID-19 vaccines, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, prior to the vaccines receiving full FDA licensure. An Emergency Use Authorization does not bypass requirements to show that the vaccine is safe and effective.
