The federal FDA has granted only emergency use authorization (EUA) for the three COVID-19 vaccines, Pfizer, Modern, and Johnson & Johnson | Austin will need a presidential waiver to require it before it is fully approved by the FDA.

  • Austin is expected to “seek authorization to make it mandatory,” the defense official said.
  • The Pentagon had intended to wait for full FDA approval, but the White House is encouraging vaccination to stem the tide of COVID-19 infections amid the rise of the delta variant.
  • A Justice Department memo last month outlined the presidential waiver as a path to mandate that active-duty troops get the EUA-only vaccinations.
