Additional quotes

The pause was “an indication that the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration take safety very seriously. I hope they make the conclusion of this quickly, and get back on track.”

“And I believe they will.”

“The concern is that the longer you draw it out, the more there will be concern about not only that vaccine but it might even have an impact on vaccine hesitancy in general.”

“If you have alternative vaccines, fine, but if you don’t, you may need to say you know, it’s a very, very small risk.”

“That will be a judgment call that will be made in the future.”
