“What criteria will be used to ensure that a vaccine meets the scientific standard of safety and effectiveness?”

“If the administration green lights a vaccine, who will validate that the decision was driven by science rather than politics? What group of scientists will that be?”

“How can we be sure that the distribution of the vaccine will take place safely, cost-free, and without a hint of favoritism?”
