WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph) issued the following statement after the FDA Advisory Committee recommended Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine receive emergency use authorization:

“I am so proud of the role Pfizer’s Portage location has played in making this day a reality. Southwest Michigan is literally helping to save the world, and we take tremendous pride in all of those Michiganders who have been and will continue to serve such a critical role in distributing this life-saving vaccine around the country and throughout the world,” Upton said. “This vaccine is essential to helping end the COVID-19 pandemic and restoring a sense of normalcy. While this is an exciting day, as folks await the vaccine, everyone should continue to follow the CDC guidelines and wear their masks, wash their hands, and avoid large crowds to help stop the spread.”
