Jackson, who is a disciple of Rev. Martin Luther King was crucial in the movement of modern civil rights. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, but this didn’t stop him from actively advocating vaccines of COVID-19 for black people, who are far behind white people in vaccination drive. He and his wife, Jacqueline, are getting treated in Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

According to multiple media outlets, the vaccines of Pfizer-BioNTech could receive full authorization by the Food and Drug Administration, possibly as soon as Monday. The New York Times talked to officials who were familiar with the plans but were not in authority to disclose anything publicly, who confessed to full authorization shortly.

Vivek Murthy, the US Surgeon General, said that it wouldn’t be surprising if the vaccines won full approval. The Pfizer vaccine, along with vaccines of Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, was made accessible under emergency use.

Pointing out the lack of full approval after many months, many vaccine-hesitant people have questioned the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Vivek Murthy said that he hopes that full approval might encourage people to get vaccinated and increase their faith in the vaccines. This can hopefully lead to curbing the excessive spread of the virus, fueled by the delta variant.

The approval of President Joe Biden’s handling of the pandemic has decreased since the last few weeks after the country witnessed a fourth coronavirus wave. A survey by Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that last month, 66% of people approved of his job, while the number has decreased to just 54%. This decrease is largely due to independents’ and republicans’ disapproval.

In the last week, the country has seen more than 1 million new coronavirus cases. This rate hasn’t been reported in more than 6 months. With the spread of the highly contagious delta variant, the people of the US are experiencing high levels of anxiety. Data from AP-NORC found that 41% of people are scared and worried about themselves or their families getting infected by the deadly virus. The rate decreased in January when cases were low.
