If your major reason for not getting vaccinated was that none of the vaccines were FDA approved, you can take that excuse away now.
On Monday, the FDA gave full approval the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. This expected to open the door to more vaccine mandates.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced they granted full approval for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which gained emergency-use authorization in December 2020.

The two-dose vaccine has been approved for individuals age 16 and older. Health officials hope the action by the FDA will aid more unvaccinated individuals to trust Pfizer’s shot to be safe and effective and could be used to help employ vaccine mandates for state, local governments and private employers.
“While millions of people have already safely received COVID-19 vaccines, we recognize that for some, the FDA approval of a vaccine may now instill additional confidence to get vaccinated,” Janet Woodcock, the FDA’s acting commissioner said in a statement.
