The Current Vaccines as of Dec 29, 2020

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, both of which are being distributed to select health care facilities and pharmacies throughout Utah.

Although both vaccines are administered in two doses that are injected intramuscularly several weeks apart, each has specific requirements for storage, handling, preparation, and more.

To help you and your patients understand the differences and similarities between each vaccine, the Utah Medical Association has compiled important links to review before administering either vaccine.
