Biden’s Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on Sunday said the FDA’s approval of the Pfizer vaccine will likely lead to more vaccine mandates.
And that’s exactly what happened.
Within minutes of the FDA’s approval of the Pfizer vaccine, the Pentagon and New York schools announced new requirements.
The Pentagon announced all 1.4 million active duty service members will be required to take the jab.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also announced Monday that all of the city’s public school employees would be required to get the vaccine by September 27.
Joe Biden immediately called on Americans to get vaccinated after the FDA’s announcement on Monday.
The FDA has officially approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. While all three COVID vaccines have met FDA’s strict standards for emergency use, this FDA approval should give added confidence that this vaccine is safe and effective.
If you’re not vaccinated yet, now is the time. https://t.co/XaxFdWHbRc

Charlie Kirk asked a great question:
How can a vaccine, that according to Axios had a 42% efficacy rate in July, get FDA approval?
