Newsom Says California Will Also Independently Review Vaccine
Gov. Gavin Newsom of California announced on Monday that the state will have its own, independent panel of experts review any federally-approved coronavirus vaccines before they are administered to residents.
Recently, we put together, more formally, a vaccine steering committee. In fact, in April, the vaccine steering committee was put in play within the state of California — C.D.P.H. — Department of Public Health. We now have advanced a logistics task force working here at the Office of Emergency Service for the last few months. They have been coordinating with federal, regional and local partners to look at logistics side of how we implement and actualize our vaccine plan. California, today, is launching now more formally a scientific safety review, a work group of 11 individuals — experts in their field. These are top health experts that will independently review any F.D.A.-approved vaccines. Question I often get is are you going to take someone’s word for it as it relates vaccines? Of course, we don’t take anyone’s word for it. We will do our own independently reviewed process with our world-class experts.
