Is a meme correct in implying that there is no scientific proof behind the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) approval of vaccines? No, that's not true: The FDA provides publicly available documentation on its website for each of the three COVID-19 vaccines that have already been widely distributed, including memoranda that detail scientific proof through clinical studies to support its decision to grant Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). Also, Lead Stories has previously debunked similar claims about FDA approval of the COVID vaccine.
FDA approved does not mean scientifically proven. It means that a business deal has been made.
