WASHINGTON, D.C. – The GOP Doctors Caucus released the following statement after New York Governor Cuomo commented on Operation Warp Speed vaccine safety:
“Governor Cuomo seems so desperate to prevent any progress that may occur under this administration that he is willing to disparage the credibility and independence of the scientists and doctors who are working around the clock to save lives. His comments that it is ‘bad news’ that the Pfizer vaccine is proving to be effective are both extremely sad and dangerous for the health of Americans.
It would be unethical to delay distribution of a proven safe vaccine while Americans continue to succumb to the virus. The federal government is coordinating with state governments, tribal leaders, and private industry to ensure that a vaccine can be distributed swiftly to the American people once it is approved, and Americans should be confident that any vaccine developed under Operation Warp Speed will be safe and effective.”
