CDC statement following ACIP Moderna vote

Feb. 7, 2022

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation for use of Moderna’s vaccine for people ages 18 years and older.

This recommendation follows FDA’s decision to approve the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine for people ages 18 years and older.

The ACIP recommendation comes more than a year after the committee’s interim recommendation, and after an exhaustive review of the scientific evidence demonstrating safety and effectiveness, and supports continued use of the now licensed vaccine.
