Richard Besser, MD, says he expects FDA committee will explore coronavirus vaccine allergy reports

December 9, 2020 | 9:08 PM GMT

Richard Besser, MD, said he expects the FDA may want to do more studies or issue cautions here following the “surprising report.” “I would expect that the FDA committee tomorrow is going to want to explore that more.”
