Fauci: Pfizer head apologized for not giving "heads up" on booster announcement

In a CNN interview Friday, anchor Wolf Blitzer asked Fauci, the White House’s chief medical adviser, about concerns over a “lack of coordination” between U.S. health agencies and vaccine manufacturers.

“Why aren’t all of you on the same page?” Blitzer asked.

“Wolf, we are on the same page,” the nation’s top infectious diseases expert responded, explaining that Pfizer “came out with the announcement without giving us a heads up.”

“And quite frankly, the CEO, who is a really good guy, got on the phone with me last night and apologized that they came out with that recommendation” without first “letting us know that he was going to do it ahead of time,” Fauci said of Bourla.
