Summary

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just voted to recommend Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine for everyone over age 16.The move further paves the way for the shots to be rolled out in the US, although CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield still must accept the panel's recommendation.It also ensures the vaccines will be covered under the Affordable Care Act and aligns the organization with the US Food and Drug Administration, which authorized the shots for emergency use Friday night. Despite the unknowns in certain populations, ACIP was united in recommending the vaccine, agreeing its "desirable consequences clearly outweigh undesirable consequences in most settings." Committee member Dr. Beth Bell, director of the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, said the process used to come to the decision "is transparent, is science-based, keeps equity in mind, and, for this moment, is the absolute best that we can do." "I can say quite confidently that, yes I certainly will take this vaccine when I'm able, and I would give it to my family members," she added.
