The United States FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the emergency use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine on Friday.

A 17-4 vote with one abstention was undertaken on Thursday, where the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee acknowledged that the jab appears to be safe and effective for emergency use in people that are aged 16 and older.

Pfizer and a German company BioNTech developed the vaccine.

Critics say that the vaccine will be the first to fight against the COVID-19 virus in the United States after trials showed it was 95% effective in preventing such infection.
