At the beginning of the U.S. COVID outbreak, Peter Hotez was carefully nonpartisan, appearing on both Fox News and MSNBC. But as his horror grew about the lack of a national response to the pandemic, he sharply criticized the Trump administration.
Now, it’s the Biden administration’s turn. In a Tuesday op-ed in the Washington Post, Hotez explained why new variants of SARS-COV-2 require Biden to radically step up his vaccine game. Here Hotez explains how we could do that — and what he believes the U.S. must do to get vaccine into more arms.
Peter Hotez is a professor and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, and co-director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development.
