On August 23, 2021, the FDA fully approved the Pfizer vaccine for public usage. Unlike before, when the vaccine was being distributed under the rules of EUA, or Emergency Usage Authorization, the vaccine now has been fully confirmed to be as safe to use as the common flu vaccine.
How was it released before?
The vaccine was originally released under EUA due to the immediate threat of infection presented by COVID-19 when there was a lack of both public knowledge on how to avoid the virus as well as possible solutions to the danger it posed. At the time, it was one of a few different vaccines, along with the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines, that were known to provide some aid in resisting infection but were not fully documented in terms of effectiveness and side effects. Now, it has been fully evaluated by the health experts in the FDA and officially recognized as safe for public usage.
Does this mean the pandemic is over?
Since COVID-19 and its delta variant are viruses, they will mutate over time and require new renewed vaccines to combat those changes in the same way the flu does. While this will not end the pandemic, it is a great step in the right direction.
