Alex Azar: We Just Signed a Contract with Pfizer ‘to Produce 100 Million Doses of Vaccine’

‘Those, of course, would have to be safe and effective according to the FDA’s gold standard’

EXCERPT:

AZAR: “Under the president’s leadership we just signed a contract with global pharmaceutical leader Pfizer to produce 100 million doses of vaccine starting in December of this year with an option to buy another half a billion doses. Now those would, of course, have to be safe and effective according to the FDA’s gold standard, but this now adds to what President Trump has delivered, which is four other vaccine candidates. We now have five vaccine candidates that prioritize the U.S. people where we are going to manufacture vaccine and work to secure FDA approval of them all at the same time.”
