A top U.S. health official warned that some coronavirus vaccinations might harm more than help patients desperate for therapy.
In his first appearance before a Senate panel, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci told members of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee that rushing a coronavirus vaccination could lead to “negative consequences,” including the disease being enhanced in a person instead of defeated.
“We will be investigating considerable resources in developing doses even before we know any given candidate or candidate’s work,” he said. “I must warn that there is also the possibility of negative consequences where certain vaccines can actually enhance the negative effect of the infection.”
