the chief executives of nine major drugmakers pledged not to seek approval for their vaccines until their safety and effectiveness was proven in large clinical trials. The letter came amid reports that Trump was attempting to bypass the FDA’s approvals process or get fast-track emergency use approval for an experimental vaccine, even if it hasn’t yet received full regulatory approval. CNBC has reached out to the White House for comment.
“In the interest of public health, we pledge to always make the safety and well-being of vaccinated individuals our top priority,” the letter said. It was signed by the CEOs of Pfizer, AstraZeneca, BioNTech, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co., Moderna, Novavax and Sanofi.
