The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been vigilant in providing information about both new vaccines that have been approved to provide protection against COVID-19. On December 11, 2020, the FDA issued the first emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and the Moderna vaccine received an EUA shortly after on December 18, 2020. The FDA has web pages containing information and documents about both vaccines, including:
- Common Side Effects

- Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers Administering Vaccine
- Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers
- FDA Decision Memorandum
