Psaki: W.H. ‘Offered a Call with Nicki Minaj and One of Our Doctors to Answer Questions She Had About ... the Safety of the Vaccine’

‘Our hope is that anyone who has a big platform is going to project accurate information’


PSAKI: "Well, first, we don’t see this as a point of tension or disagreement. I want you all to know that we engage all the time with people who have big public platforms or profiles, some of them we talk about. Some of them are here. Some of them you don’t even know about because they’re just looking for questions to be answered. We offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she had about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. This is pretty standard and something we do all the time. It was a very early stage call at a staff level, staff to staff, and we weren’t even at the point of discussing, we’re not even at the point of discussing, I should say, at this point, the mechanisms or the formats or anything along those lines. It was simply an offer to have a conversation and an early stage call."
