On the heels of the Food and Drug Administration’s full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, President Biden again urged unvaccinated Americans to get the shots.

Speaking from the White House, he called the approval “a key milestone in our nation’s fight against covid” and stressed that inoculation saves lives. The coronavirus continues to be “a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” he said, adding that those awaiting final FDA approval no longer have a reason to delay.

“The moment you’ve been waiting for is here, it’s time for you to go get your vaccination and get it today,” Biden said.
