Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine is getting full approval from the FDA.  Dr. Mark Sannes, with HealthPartners, hopes this move may help persuade more people to get vaccinated in Minnesota and across the country:

“I think it’s important because for a lot of folks that have been hesitant to get vaccinated thus far this might be that final step they are waiting for something that got the final stamp of approval from the government saying this is a safe and effective vaccine.”

The Pfizer vaccination is the first COVID vaccine to be approved by regulators.
