Fauci and Azar receive Moderna vaccine

Just before receiving the injection, Secretary Azar endorsed vaccine development processes, saying, "I have complete confidence in the safety and efficacy of these vaccines."

Dr. Fauci viewed the public injections "as a symbol for the rest of the country" of his "extreme confidence in the safety and efficacy of this vaccine, saying, "I want to encourage everyone who has the opportunity to get vaccinated."

They both received the first dose of the Moderna vaccine, approved by the FDA last week.
