I'm very happy to see this is on the horizon. I didn't hesitate myself, but this removes a major roadblock for a lot of individuals. Hoping to see vaccination numbers rise significantly this fall.
I wonder if it means companies and schools can mandate it without as much backblow in some states that have a high vaccine hesitancy. My husband’s hospital system already mandate it for this fall not I know some places are hesitating.
How about they get on 5-11 so my kids can have school be normal? K thx 😛
My guess is that in September the popular excuse among the vaccine hesitant will shift from waiting for full FDA approval to claiming that the FDA approval was "rushed" and not done well.
But on the other hand...with full FDA approval will come an avalanche of employers/events/etc. that will require it.
That should boost numbers up pretty significantly.
Ok cool. When can I get my daughter vaccinated?
But what about kids???
Time for vaccine mandates for work and school.
Biden was a bit of a disaster at the town hall last night. I'm a Biden fan, proudly voted for him. But felt embarrassed by how the answers re covid were handled last night. Definitely did not instill confidence that they have a good plan on how to move forward.
Can you give me a tl;dr of what went down?
So far I'm just surprised at the lack of acknowledgement in how many breakthrough cases delta is having recently. I've been subscribed to r/covid19positive since January, never saw a breakthrough post, now if you take a look there's an abundance of fully vaccinated people getting covid.
What does approval even mean when 100M have already received it?
People can no longer use the "emergency use authorization" excuse any more.
Make it so, so that the COVID vaccines are mandatory. It's going to be a rough summer with Delta.
Rough rest of the year, really. And that's without even taking into account lambda and epsilon variants. Unless everyone gets vaccinated, we're fucked.
get rid of mask mandates and mask shaming.....start vaccine mandating and anti-vax shaming.
Isn’t this too late for colleges and any public schools?
Will this finally shut up the people whining about it being "experimental?" Or will they instead say, "This drug doesn't have a long enough track record?"
Fuck. I answered my own question.
There will always be more science denying bs.
I hope this is true and not just Uncle Joe talking. We need full approval now.
What will then be the next excuse used by people afraid of a little needle?
Next excuse will be Full approval was to quick obviously they paid off the FDA
Do you have a link to a description of these studies and what the schedule is?
I tried web searching to find them a few times and could not locate anything.
Holy shit this is fantastic news! I thought it would be at the end of the year or early next year at the earliest.
That's not early. What is the hold up?
At which point, I am 100% ok with vaccine passports and requiring it to maintain employment (unless valid medical exemption).
Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System 463,456 Reports
Through July 9, 2021
"Such response appears to be quite vigorous in the presence of DNA vaccines which encode viral vectors, as well as in subjects who are immunized because of previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2. The resulting pathological features may resemble those of active coronavirus disease. The free-floating Spike proteins synthetized by cells targeted by vaccine and destroyed by the immune response circulate in the blood and systematically interact with angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors expressed by a variety of cells including platelets, thereby promoting ACE2 internalization and degradation. These reactions may ultimately lead to platelet aggregation, thrombosis and inflammation mediated by several mechanisms including platelet ACE2 receptors. Whereas Phase III vaccine trials generally excluded participants with previous immunization, vaccination of huge populations in the real life will inevitably include individuals with preexisting immunity. This might lead to excessively enhanced inflammatory and thrombotic reactions in occasional subjects. Further research is urgently needed in this area."

Now compare incidence of cardiovascular and immunological complications from vaccines, to the risk from COVID itself.
Time to put in those call options for Pfizer and Moderna
