Hall of Famer

Is this because Pfizer didn't take part in Trump's "Operation Warp Speed" program? I can honestly see him being him being that horrible of a person. Did he feel snubbed because Pfizer turned down US money? The vaccine will now go to other countries in the EU and the UK. The UK is already vaccinating their citizens. The EU has options of up to 300 million doses now, given another idiotic blunder from the Trump Regime.
U.S. declined to buy more Pfizer Covid vaccine doses, even after interim data, board member Gottlieb says
"Pfizer did offer up an additional allotment ... to the United States government multiple times," Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC.
- The Trump administration declined Pfizer’s offer to provide the U.S. government with additional coronavirus vaccine doses in the second quarter of 2021, board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb said.
- Pfizer made an offer “multiple times” to provide more than the 100 million doses it already agreed to supply, Gottlieb told CNBC.
- The remarks confirm a report Monday from The New York Times.
Pfizer reportedly urged U.S. government officials to pre-order more than 100 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine, but they declined, raising new questions about whether there will be enough shots to ensure a broad and quick rollout stateside if the FDA grants an emergency use authorization soon.
The pharmaceutical company offered the government a chance to lock in additional supplies before its vaccine was proved effective in clinical trials.
