COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Briefing Report

As the world awaits the fast-approaching rollout of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, developing the planning to order, distribute and track COVID-19 vaccines in the United States and globally presents an unprecedented challenge.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a detailed analysis that concluded that the Pfizer and BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is effective and safe, leading the way for the FDA to grant the vaccine an emergency use authorization.
