The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee has officially approved Pfizer, and BioNTech's coronavirus vaccine candidate for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) after a vote of 17-4 was counted, with one committee member abstaining.

While the FDA has given Pfizer's vaccine EUA, that doesn't mean the candidate will begin to be rolled out to Americans. The vote now has to be reviewed by the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, who will confirm the decision. As for the effectiveness of the vaccine, in the late-stage clinical trials, it proved to be 95% effective at preventing a COVID-19 infection.
