Dr. Sharfstein on Doses Schedule: We Should Stick to the Regimen that Is Proven To Be 95% Effective

‘But even with that regimen, we should be trying to get as many people vaccinated as we can, particularly in the high risk groups’

EXCERPT:

SHARFSTEIN: "I agree with Dr. Fauci and the FDA that we should stick to the regimen that is proven to be 95 percent effective. But even with that regimen, we should be trying to get as many people vaccinated as we can, particularly in the high-risk groups. I think that there should be a quantity strategy, where we are opening pharmacies, vaccine centers, and we’re not falling behind as the supply comes in, getting people vaccinated, and a focused strategy with outreach teams to senior housing, to congregate living centers, to high-risk workplaces, so that people who are really in harm's way can be vaccinated. And that is going to require a lot of resources, some of which were just appropriated by this latest bill, but haven’t reached the state and local health departments that really have to mobilize a major effort to be successful."
