Biden Says He Would Follow Scientists’ Guidance About Vaccine
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said would heed the advice of scientists about whether to get a coronavirus vaccine if one were to become available before November’s presidential election.
“I’d want to see what the scientists said,” he told reporters Monday outside a supporter’s home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Asked if he would trust Anthony Fauci and the Food and Drug Administration, Biden redirected, saying he’d “want full transparency on a vaccine.”
Biden has previously expressed concern about President Donald Trump and political appointees pushing for the premature approval of a vaccine in hopes of boosting his re-election chances. “He’s undermining public confidence,” Biden said of Trump.
