FYI for anyone looking for specifically Pfizer in Lakewood, Walgreens has wide open scheduling.

Chemed will also be giving Pfizer this week in the evenings

All the frum employees who "had it already"?

Or lower level employees from communities that buy hard into FUD.

And most of them had it already.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

NYT now reporting that FDA will approve Pfizer vaccine for ages 12-16 by early next week - wow! This can make a huge difference for sleepaway camps this summer, as well as for Israel that is expected to follow the FDA's lead.

Approved!

FDA approved, but still can't actually be given to ages 12-16 until it also receives CDC approval, which is expected on Wednesday.

Where does the CDC come in? Isn't the FDA the one that approves all medicine in the US?

My understanding is the FDA say medicine is Kosher (safe), but the CDC says it's tasty (recommended).

The reason we need the CDC is because by and large it's the government vaccinating, so they need two know it's the appropriate course of action and being safe and effective is insufficient.

In any case CDC is just a formality/rubber-stamp.
