House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Has confirmed she will get the coronavirus vaccine if approved, after some Democrats expressed alarm that President Trump’s approval was accelerating.
“I don’t need a big needle. I mean, I have a hard time piercing my ear. I am not a big fan of needles, ”she told reporters at a press conference.
“I mean, they talk to me about the flu flu under extreme pressure every year – but if it serves as a model to other people, yes I will get the vaccine if it is approved by a regular order of thing. “
The spokesman said the Trump administration wanted to pass Phase Three tests proving vaccine safety, but said it relied on U.S. health officials and drug companies to ensure safety and effectiveness.
BIDEN, HARRIS DISPUTE ABOUT TRUMP INTERFERENCE IN CORONAVIRUS VACCINE WITHOUT SOMETHING TOP TOP HEALTH EXPERTS
“I don̵7;t like the pressure the White House puts on all of this and the statements ‘Maybe we don’t need clinical trials like we usually do, we can only do these two instead of three’ and all that , ” he says.
Pelosi added: “Let me salute the FDA scientists, and even some of the people at the CDC … who have long been there about the highest caliber of science that supports today that the FDA is taking that initiative. this. “
“Let science define it, not politics, and then people will have confidence in the product,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Democratic presidential ticket has been criticized for sowing fear associated with the coronavirus vaccine.
“We do not allow politics to interfere with the vaccine in any way,” Biden said last month. “Americans have to put up with President Trump’s incompetence and rudeness when it comes to probation and personal protective equipment. We can’t afford to repeat those fiestas when it comes to a vaccine, when it happens. The stakes are too high.”
TRUMP VOWS EXTREMELY CORONAVIRUS VACCINES FOR APRIL ‘ALL AMERICAN’
“I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. I do not trust Trump,” he said.
While Biden said he trusts vaccines, he added that “this administration needs to be held accountable to assure American citizens that politics will not play a role in the vaccine process.”
Those statements came after his running mate Kamala Harris, sparked controversy by predicting that public health experts would be “sealed, restrained, they would be sidelined, because [Trump’s] looking at an election that will come in less than 60 days, and he can handle whatever he gets to pretend he was the leader of this issue when he was not. “
When asked if he could get a hypothetical pre-election vaccine, he said: “I think that will be an issue for all of us. I will say that I will not trust Donald Trump and he will have a credible source of information that speaks. about the effectiveness and reliability of whatever he is talking about, I will not say for him. “
“I want to see what the scientists say,” Biden said separately in response to a question about whether he would get the vaccine approved by the Trump administration. “I want full transparency in the vaccine. One of the problems is the way he plays politics. He said a lot of things are not true and I am worried if we have a really good vaccine that people will be reluctant to take it. . “
At a press conference earlier this month Trump promised adequate doses of the coronavirus vaccine for “every American” until April. He predicted availability to begin immediately in early October, which directly contradicted a longer timeline offered on the day by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Robert Redfield.
Redfield told a panel of Senate lawmakers not to expect a coronavirus vaccine to be widely available to the majority of the U.S. population until the summer of 2021.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said he would bet on a coronavirus vaccine in November or December.
