Early this morning, sources reported that the FDA has finally approved the long-awaited Häagen-Dasz Covid vaccine for emergency use.
The vaccine, which comes in a variety of flavors, has taken almost eight months longer than pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer to obtain approval.
“We’re ready to announce that Häagen-Dasz Covid vaccine is safe, effective, and creamy,” stated the FDA’s website about the fourth vaccine in the United States approved for EUA. “Getting vaccinated is the only way to stop the spread of the Delta variant and put an end to the pandemic for good.”
Side effects of the vaccine are comparable to those observed after other mRNA vaccines, plus potential weight gain and bloating, especially for those sensitive to dairy.
Like the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine, the Häagen-Dasz vaccine will be a two-dose jab, both of which will come with toppings.
“We urge everyone 12 and older to go get vaccinated,” the FDA’s statement. “A fourth available option will help increase vaccine accessibility in every area of the country — especially the accessibility of Mint Chocolate Chip and Rocky Road vaccines.”
The Häagen-Dasz is not recommended for those who are at risk of developing type 2 Diabetes.
