This week’s big news is that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave its full approval to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, a move that I hope may encourage some unvaccinated Americans to get the shots as our nation continues to battle the most contagious variant to date.

Don’t miss your shot. The COVID-19 vaccines can help us end the pandemic. If you have not done so, get vaccinated today.
