FDA gives emergency use authorization to Novavax's Covid vaccine


FDA gives emergency use authorization to Novavax's Covid vaccine

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday (Jul 13) authorized Novavax's Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use in adults. It is the fourth coronavirus vaccine available in the United States, and it uses a different type of vaccine technology than the shots already available.

Novavax's vaccine will be available as two-dose primary series for people 18 and older.

Unlike some other Covid-19 shots, Novavax's vaccine can be stored in standard refrigeration.

About 1 in 3 Americans has still not been vaccinated against Covid-19, more than 100 million people. Many officials and health care workers hope that a vaccine like Novavax's, which uses more familiar technology, may be enough to persuade people who've been hesitant to get inoculated.
