If the Pfizer vaccine is approved, then why does it need an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)? Answer! It comes with an EUA because it is not approved and remains an untested experimental vaccine.

Because the vaccine has been fully approved for those aged 16 years and older. It is still authorized to be administered to those between the ages of 12 and 16 under an Emergency Use Authorization.

This has caused some confusion. But if you're over the age of 16, the Pfizer vaccine is fully approved.
