FDA Panel Recommends Emergency Use of Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine

HeadlineJun 09, 2022

Meanwhile, a panel of vaccine experts has recommended the FDA allow emergency use of Novavax’s COVID-19 vaccine. The experts say the protein-based shots are highly protective against severe disease and death. This comes as NBC news reports U.S. states, territories, federal agencies and pharmacies have wasted over 82 million COVID-19 vaccine doses. That’s enough to vaccinate a majority of adults in Congo — a country where only 1% of people are fully vaccinated.
