The CDC approves NOVAVAX COVID-19 Adjuvanted Vaccine
(Tuesday, August 2, 2022) West Covina, CA - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has approved the NOVAVAX COVID-19 Adjuvanted Vaccine as a 2-dose series, with the second dose given 3-8 weeks apart. This new COVID-19 vaccine is protein-based and another option for the already approved Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccines. It will be available to people ages 18 and older who require or prefer a protein-based vaccine. The NOVAVAX COVID-19 Adjuvanted Vaccine is not authorized for use as a booster.
According to the CDC, the NOVAVAX COVID-19 Adjuvanted Vaccine ingredients "are considered safe for most people. Nearly all of the ingredients in COVID-19 vaccines are ingredients found in many foods—fats, sugar, and salts. The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine also includes harmless pieces (proteins) of the virus that causes COVID-19; they are pieces of what is often called the spike protein."
