CDC, Mumps, Abed discussed on RJ Politics
The vaccine because their more susceptible to the corona virus so I imagine they're very curious about the procedures, the safety would you tell People Wanna ask? Well. Listen I like everyone else when when is see this pandemic come to an end in first and foremost You know there's this project called project warp speed which was. Funded through the cares act I'm basically getting additional funding into vaccine development reports have been out lately that this process of approving it has become highly politicized in. I.
