    All of the vaccines to date have been given emergency authorization. The reason? Testing and trials are far from complete. There's a great deal we still don't know about the efficacy of these vaccines, and this is why they have not yet been formally approved for use by the FDA. There's a lot of misinformation, and even disinformation, on social media, which is why I strongly encourage you to take anything you see on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with a large tablespoonful of salt.
