Dr. Jha On Pfizer Vaccine: We Should Not Have Doses Sitting Around Waiting For Instructions | MSNBC 1


Dr. Ashish Jha joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss Pfizer vaccine distribution and the endorsement of the FDA panel on the Moderna vaccine. "The vaccine has two benefits: it protects me when I get vaccinated, but it should protect people around me because I should become less likely to spread the virus." Dr. Jha then added, "until recently we didn't know if it did that second part. Now we have data that shows that it does. And that’s really, really important.” Aired on 12/18/2020.

    They truly have to F*** up EVERYTHING!!!!!

  2. I don’t expect anything less from the Trump adminstration. I’m suprised he hasn’t nuked us yet.

    • I agree 100%. I wonder how it was soooo easy for Russia to hack sooooo many industries and The United States Intel community just found out. I would love for us to be able to tap Trumps phone/phones. Who has this lunatic been talking to? We need to change the Nuclear Codes without telling him…NOW!!! I doubt if he has only one. Trump is soooo vindictive and he feels America has turned it’s back on him by not voting him in again. America just fired him and he is not taking this very well. Trump will hurt anyone he feels that did him wrong..and, that is America.

    • There was a very big hurricane season. He had lots choices on dropping a nuclear bomb. Water is wet.

    • Oh Christ, don’t put ideas into Donnie’s head….

    Nice 36:14 🍌🍌🍌🍌

  4. Smooth as broken glass. Warp speed——>Farce.

  5. They are punishing Pfizer for not being part of Operation Warp Speed (receiving money from the Trump administration). They are pressuring the FDA to approve the Moderna vaccine (Moderna received money from Trump admin. to make their vaccine) so that they can push Moderna over Pfizer! They are tryin to hurt Pfizer financially bcuz Pfizer called out the Trump admin lie that they produced a vaccine bcuz of his efforts! This is classic Trumpism: punish your enemies or anybody who disagrees with your assertions.

    • Surely, the vaccine doses are already paid for… terms for their reservation??

    • @MaxMisterC The initially requested batch was paid for…no new order has been received from the Trump admin for the vaccines that are in storage even thou the states are in short supply.

    • @Jared Tennant
      Well, Pfizer need to sell it to the countries that want it now then, there must be a few about… Thanx 4 the info 👍🏾

    • @MaxMisterC Rmbr Trump signed (or is about to sign) an Executive Order preventing them from sellin it to other countries unless most ppl in the USA got it.

    • @Jared Tennant
      Well, if the trump regime, pfaff around too long, then that will get “challenged” & will just devolve into yet another court case for the trump admin to lose…..

    These vaccines have a shelf life & cannot sit on the shelf forever & beyond the date of expiry! Donald tRump’s date of expiry expires on January 20th/2021/12:00 noon & the moment can’t come soon enough! God help us all!

  7. Why don’t Americans have affordable healthcare, education and housing like they did in 1950s ?
    ….. ..

  8. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together. .

  9. Warp speed is another Trump disaster.

  10. Operation Warp Speed is Trump’s daily hits of Adderall.

  11. This 8s what trump wants, a disaster. Pfizer is doing Trump’s bidding by cutting off nearly 50% of the vaccine supply. If you don’t challenge guests like this who lie, you aren’t worth anything as media.

  12. Incompetence from the Trump Admin? Noooooo! 🤬

    I think what is going on is that all the powers that be, Trump and his administration, have bought shares in Mederna. They want financial benefits that they won’t get with Pfizer. I think that’s also why turned down buying more doses when offered.

    OMG 😍💋 💝💖❤️

  15. Probably being reserved for bankers and Trumps administration.

  16. Call/email your senators and representatives. Congress needs to move on this if the WH will not people need help now.

  17. Here’s a simple idea. Ask t’rump what he’s planning to do, and then simply do the opposite.
    Problem solved! 😉


  19. Unlike the Ttrumpf administration, Pfizer should have a plan B to ship the vaccines out to a country which has the logistics to immunise it’s population.

  20. Jared Kushner: “These are our vaccines, not of the American people.”
