Biden's fight with Mod­er­na over pro­vid­ing vac­cines for the poor­est coun­tries in­ten­si­fies

With about $10 bil­lion in tax­pay­er funds in­vest­ed in Mod­er­na so far, it would seem that the com­pa­ny would be more un­der­stand­ing of pleas from Pres­i­dent Joe Biden and the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment to pro­vide more vac­cine dos­es to low- and mid­dle-in­come coun­tries.

But the Biden-Mod­er­na feud over sup­ply­ing the world with dos­es of mR­NA vac­cines is now spilling in­to the pub­lic, with Biden’s chief sci­ence of­fi­cer of the gov­ern­ment’s Covid-19 re­sponse David Kessler ex­plain­ing the de­tails in an on­line pan­el dis­cus­sion mod­er­at­ed by Yale law pro­fes­sor Amy Kapczyn­s­ki on Wednes­day.
