The Food and Drug Administration has granted Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine full approval.

The vaccine was previously available in the U.S. under emergency use authorization.

This full approval could help ease concerns from those who have been hesitant to get the shot.

Experts say full approval could also open the door to more vaccine mandates. Officials discussed how to prepare for the rollout over the weekend.

The full FDA approval has only been granted for those 16 and older. Those who are 12 through 15 can still get the vaccine under the emergency authorization.
