Fact Checking Claims that the Pfizer Vaccine Is Not Yet Approved

A widely shared article from Red Voice America, which describes itself as being owned by “patriots” and fighting “false narratives against conservatives,” claims that “Biden BUSTED As Pfizer ADMITS There’s No Vaccine Approved By FDA In The U.S. In Recorded Call.” The article claims to have a phone call recording of a Pfizer employee who allegedly “admits” that the Pfizer vaccine has not been approved by the FDA.

In an email to The Dispatch Fact Check, a spokesperson for Pfizer confirmed that the Pfizer COVID-19, which has been available for use under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) since December 11, 2020, has been granted FDA approval. The approval was noted at the time by many major media outlets, including the Washington Post, NPR, the New York Times, CNN, and the Associated Press, among others.
