FDA Gives Vaccine Approval, But Republican Senator Asks If It Was ‘Rushed’

After months of testing and evaluation, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the Pfizer COVID vaccine, a major development in the debate over vaccine mandates.

However, some are arguing the FDA rushed the approval process.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., sent a letter to top health officials warning the vaccine process may have been rushed to get more mandates in place.

“I see no need to rush the FDA approval process for any of the three COVID-19 vaccines,” reads the letter, first reported by the Washington Times. “Expediting the process appears to only serve the political purpose of imposing and enforcing vaccine mandates.”

Other Republicans shared a different opinion. Pfizer has been documented to be 95% effective in preventing COVID infection and to significantly lower the risk of hospitalization for those who are infected.

“The FDA has fully approved the Pfizer vaccine,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. “An even further testament to the genius of science and success of Operation Warp Speed. Multiple vaccines have proven safe and effective at keeping us safe from COVID. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, do it today.”

The FDA said they expect this approval to lead to many more Americans receiving the vaccine.

“The FDA’s approval of this vaccine is a milestone as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock. “While this and other vaccines have met the FDA’s rigorous, scientific standards for emergency use authorization, as the first FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine, the public can be very confident that this vaccine meets the high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality the FDA requires of an approved product. While millions of people have already safely received COVID-19 vaccines, we recognize that for some, the FDA approval of a vaccine may now instill additional confidence to get vaccinated. Today’s milestone puts us one step closer to altering the course of this pandemic in the U.S.”
