As we now enter the 3rd year of FDA’s public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this plenary session will reflect on some of FDA’s noteworthy milestones and landmark accomplishments. We’ll review the use of the emergency use authorization (EUA) authority that advanced the timely availability of a wide range of medical products such as vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, and personal protective equipment.

Featuring the respective FDA Center Directors from CDER, CBER, and CDRH, we’ll also take a look ahead at FDA’s future activities in the fight against COVID-19 and beyond.

An emergency use authorization, or EUA, is a regulatory pathway that allows FDA to help strengthen the nation’s public health protections by facilitating the availability and use of medical countermeasures needed during public health emergencies. Under this pathway, FDA may allow unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.
