Kansas City Star: Where to get COVID vaccine in Kansas City area, now that Pfizer has full FDA approval

Covid Vaccine

By Lisa Gutierrez

Now that the Food and Drug Administration has given its full approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Kansas City area hospital officials — facing a surge of patients — hope the hesitant will now step up for their shot.

“This is wonderful news,” Dr. Angela Myers, division director of infectious diseases at Children’s Mercy, said Monday during a University of Kansas Health System briefing.

“Now that the vaccine is approved, please if you haven’t done it yet, go out there, get yourself vaccinated, get your kid vaccinated and we can help stem this tide.”

Anyone 12 and older can get the Pfizer vaccine.

The shots are free and plentiful — much easier to find than when they first came out under the FDA’s emergency use authorization in December.

Myers said she thinks the FDA’s move on Monday “will help some people get off the fence.”
