Poynter: Louisiana lawmakers wrongly say a name change for Pfizer’s vaccine scuttles the FDA’s approval

Poynter: Louisiana lawmakers wrongly say a name change for Pfizer’s vaccine scuttles the FDA’s approval. “In August, the Food and Drug Administration gave full and final approval to the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer for people 16 and older. But 10 Republican Louisiana lawmakers allege ‘there is no FDA approval for the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine for COVID-19.’ The state representatives put that in bold at the top of a Sept. 29 letter to Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards. No, it’s not like those lawmakers didn’t get the memo on FDA approval. They saw it, but they tried to make the argument that it didn’t count.”
