Fauci, FDA Chief Vow Not to Rush Unsafe Vaccine

Dr. Anthony Fauci has told members of Congress that the the U.S. needs to be careful to establish the safety and effectiveness of any potential coronavirus vaccine before rushing into production and distribution.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and U.S. Food and Drug Administration chief Stephen Hahn are testifying before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Hahn seconded Fauci's view Tuesday, saying the FDA would not cut corners on safety and effectiveness when considering whether to approve a vaccine.

Fauci says he’d be “very disappointed if we jumped to a conclusion before we know a vaccine was truly safe and effective.”

He says a move like that would only create “perpetual ambiguity.”
