New York-President Donald Trump escalated his coronavirus vaccine promise before Election Day.
But across the United States, Democrats, independents and even certain Republicans do not trust his government to produce a safe and effective vaccine on this vaccine. Whenever a vaccine is released, this hesitation could exacerbate the public health risks for millions of Americans.
As the November 3 election approaches, Democratic officials are facing subtle political challenges.
Should they be overly aggressive in attacking Trump’s vaccine claims, Democrats risk further undermining public confidence in a possible life-saving medicine, while it seems that they are eradicating a potential cure. However, if they do not back down, this will make it easier for Trump to use the real or imagined prospects of the vaccine to promote his re-election.
When Washington Governor Jay Insley was asked if he demonstrated the Democratic Party’s balancing act on Friday
"If all the rules are followed and the evidence is of course scientific, I will follow the scientific "It doesn't matter, when does it happen," Inslee told the Associated Press. "But I will have to look at science, not Donald Trump.
After Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg became president, the sudden dispute over the future of the Supreme Court may have obscured concerns about rapid vaccines. Died on Friday. But Insley’s comments are in line with the growing consensus among Democrats in leadership positions, including the party’s presidential candidate Joe Biden.
They repeatedly expressed doubts about Trump's promise, but promised to follow the guidance of scientists and healthcare experts, such as the government's main infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Trump reiterated his promise to get vaccinations almost every day.
Trump promised on Friday that by the end of 2010, 100 million doses of still unknown vaccines will be produced, and by April there will be enough vaccines for all Americans.
"In Trump's briefing, "the three vaccines are in the final stages."
"Joe Biden's anti-vaccine theory has brought people a lot of lives at stake. They did it for political reasons," the president said on the White House podium. "Now that we know that we essentially have this vaccine, That is part of the war to discredit this vaccine. We will announce it shortly.
Only eight months ago, the first case of COVID-19 was reported in the United States. Health experts, including the director of the government authority’s own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, believe that it takes at least 12 months to 18 months to produce the vaccine. Months, because extensive testing is needed to ensure that it is safe and effective.
The coronavirus vaccine is very complicated.
Trump was politically hit by this pandemic, which destroyed the global economy And killed nearly 200,000 Americans, more than three times the number of deaths he predicted in April. However, in the six weeks before the November 3 election, voters began to feel the broad perception that things had begun. Go in the right direction (at least a little bit), although experts warn that it is believed that the worst is over.  A poll released by the Kaiser Family Foundation last week showed that there are now very few The fourth said that “the worst has passed”, while the same number said that “the worst has yet to come.” This is the most optimistic outlook reported by think tanks since the pandemic began. Three people believe that the “worst time has not come yet” in early April.
At the same time, most Americans worry that political pressure from the government will cause the Food and Drug Administration to rush to approve the use of the coronavirus vaccine without ensuring it is safe and effective According to Kaiser, it includes 85% of Democrats, 61% of independents and 35% of Republicans.
“At present, no one really believes that they are ready before the election,” Mo, who oversees public opinion research. Mollyann Brodie said. “The politicization of such an important health issue has had a “huge impact”,” she said. She pointed out that public health officials persuaded as many Americans as possible whenever a vaccine is released. People taking the vaccine face a huge challenge.
One of the three Democratic doctors serving in the House of Representatives, California Rep. Ami Bera said that Democrats who are facing tough elections this fall Efforts are being made to deal with this thorny issue. As Trump suggested, the United States has turned the crisis into peace.
He said that vaccines are vital and should be welcomed as soon as science believes it is safe.
" I don't have any vaccine hesitation. I know the great power of vaccines. We will need vaccines. I have no problems with vaccination," Bella said.
But he warned: "Please trust the scientist. Trust the doctor.
On Capitol Hill, the Democrats insisted on a simple and consistent message, namely to promote vaccines as soon as possible but not sooner. Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (Daniel D. Calif) praised the FDA scientists and researchers responsible for the vaccine program last Friday, but she was highly critical of the FDA commissioner appointed by Trump.
"We all hope and pray for the vaccine, Pelosi said.
"From a safety and effectiveness point of view, we don't want it to be a day earlier than it was prepared, and we don't want it a day either after that. "Add. "I hope soon.
Despite this, it is still uncertain that all Americans will take the vaccine when it is available.
Only about half of Americans say that if there is a vaccine, they will definitely or might get it. According to Pew Research A survey released by the Pew Research Center last week showed that they are them today.]
