Fauci criticizes UK's 'swift' Pfizer's vaccine approval

Director of the United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci criticized on Thursday the United Kingdom's "swift" approval of the vaccine against COVID-19 developed by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE.

"The UK did not do it as carefully," Fauci told Fox News. "If you go quickly and you do it superficially, people are not going to want to get vaccinated."

The United Kingdom approved Pfizer and BioNTech's vaccine earlier this month and is expected to start the mass vaccination of its citizens next week.
