Local Officials React to FDA Approval

Local Health Officials say the Approval of the Pfizer Vaccine could be the reassurance needed for more people to get vaccinated. Some Officials said that a lack of FDA Approval might be one reason people were discouraged from getting the shot.

John Pastorek, Director of Pharmacy at Mainline Pharmacy saying: “If it gives some people that extra boost of confidence to go ahead and get it, then I think it’s a good thing.”

Dr. Graham Snyder, UPMC Medical Director of Infection Prevention and Hospital Epidemiology saying: “I think for people who are unsure about the science behind these vaccines, this should be a piece of information that provides reassurance.”
