Certain vax-fiends keep telling us the Pfizer vaccine is FDA approved by some sort of proxy. If so, why isn't it on this list??

@farin42 @Johncdvorak I think the point is that the 6th one is not Pfizer


comirnaty = pfizer

100.00% confirmed by my own jabbing experience

so it's FDA approved

@csb @Johncdvorak

You didn't receive Comirnaty. You couldn't have.

There is no *available* FDA approved licensed vaccine.

If FDA approved & licensed COVID19 vaccine, it would have to revoke the EUA vaccines & subject the vaccine maker to more liability risk. So it only approved a future vaccine that isn't "available".


I received comirnaty 100% for sure, however it was in europe. it is made by biontech company that is fully owned by pfizer. The branding/name was 100% for sure: comirnaty by pfizer/biontech, pfizer logo was visible

@csb @Johncdvorak

You do realize that FDA is a United States agency, yes?

@Johncdvorak It's a semantic game; Pfizer vax isn't approved but it's interchangeable with Comirnaty, which is approved - and of course that makes sense (SCIENCE!!). The FDA's own FAQ say it this way: "When prepared according to their respective instructions for use, the licensed vaccine (Comirnaty) and the two EUA-authorized formulations of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for ages 12 years of age and older can be used interchangeably without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns."

@CaptLuke @Johncdvorak there is more to it than just that wording... I believe @Johncdvorak and @adam went through it on the show.

Comirnaty is a "legally distinct" product , but it's being claimed to be "medically interchangeable" with the Pfizer vax. Maybe this video can explain.

@Johncdvorak Actually, it looks like Pfizer is the ONLY approved one. If you actually look at them all, Moderna and J&J don't seem to be.
