Dr. Offit on COVID-19: ‘This Isn’t a Republican Problem or a Democratic Problem, this Virus Affects All of Us’

‘The federal government does need to step up their response to vaccination in the same way that they stepped up the response to making the vaccine’

EXCERPT:

OFFIT: "I think we have it in us. I think as Americans, there are times when we pull together in faces of national tragedy, like World War II or like 9/11, where we do pull together and see ourselves all as part of this shared problem. This isn't a Republican problem or a Democratic problem, this virus affects all of us. And do we have it in us to do these sort of mass vaccination campaign events? Of course we do. We just need to get it together to do that. And we do need money to do that. I mean, the federal government does need to step up their response to vaccination in the same way that they stepped up their response to making the vaccine."
