On August 23, 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved all three vaccines in the U.S. because they were proven to help prevent people from getting Covid-19 and greatly lessening the severe effects of the disease. The three vaccines that were approved are Johnson & Johnson’s Jassen, Pfizer/BioNTech, and Moderna.

Children the age of 12 or older are able to get vaccinated. Children from the of five to eleven could have a vaccine authorized soon. The FDA examined research from 44,000 vaccinated people and the vaccines were proven to reduce their likelihood of getting Covid-19 by 91%. Also, the chances of having serious side effects were extremely decreased.

The three Covid-19 vaccines that were approved.

The FDA gathered more information about the number of serious side effects that resulted from taking the vaccine from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They found more proof that all of the approved vaccines are safe for most people to get them. A list of the serious side-effect symptoms include: aches, fever, joint pain, and nausea–all of which likely occur a day or two after getting the shot. But these symptoms aren’t quite as common when people are fully vaccinated.
