Dr. Scott Gottlieb Advocates Flexible Vaccination Strategies

02/16/2021

Speaking on Face the Nation on Sunday February 14th Dr. Scott Gottlieb, previously FDA Commissioner and now a member of the Board of Pfizer among other involvements in the pharmaceutical industry, opined, “The Administration should advocate for “tailored solutions” to deliver vaccines to underserved communities.”  He suggests using mobile vans and community locations.  He considers that existing mass vaccination sites, pharmacies and supermarkets could satisfy what he characterizes as “easy demand”.

 

Gottlieb emphasized, “people who can go online, register, drive to Dodger Stadium, wait in line, take half a day off from work to get vaccinated – those are people who could otherwise be served by Walmart, CVS, and Rite-Aid.”  He added “if the U.S. is to effectively vaccinate 70 to 80 percent of the population, minority communities will have to be accessed and public health authorities must take into account the restraints under which prospective recipients of vaccine are placed and should plan and respond accordingly”
