Maintaining faith in all three vaccines while highlighting the benefits of FDA approval will be a balancing act for White House messengers.

He said the vaccines are effective at staving off disease and highlighted the FDA approval without specifying which company secured it

“Of the nearly 80 million eligible Americans who have not gotten vaccinated, many said they were waiting for approval from the Food and Drug Administration — the FDA

“Mandatory vaccination against COVID-19 will only use COVID-19 vaccines that receive full licensure from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in accordance with FDA-approved labeling and guidance,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin wrote in mandating COVID-19 vaccination for U.S
