FDA Authorizes Emergency Use of Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine

On July 13, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) endorsed an advisory committee's recommendation that the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine be used as a primary series option for adults.

"We have expanded the options available to adults in the U.S. by recommending another safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. If you have been waiting for a COVID-19 vaccine built on a different technology than those previously available, now is the time to join the millions of Americans who have been vaccinated," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a statement. "With COVID-19 cases on the rise again across parts of the country, vaccination is critical to help protect against the complications of severe COVID-19 disease."
