Government Wants COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Ready by November : US News : Latin Post – Latin news, immigration, politics, culture (Just say no to politics before safety)

FDA and other top government said only science and data will be taken into account in deciding if a vaccine is accepted.

Peter Marks, the director of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said on Thursday that he had faced no political pressure to release a vaccine without sufficient data on its safety and efficacy.

Marks added that he would resign if that happened.

FDA said it might release the first vaccine as an Emergency Use Authorization rather than the full licensing process, adding that if that has enough data on safety and efficacy.
