PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — As Moderna is seeking FDA emergency authorization use for its Coronavirus vaccine, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald says that ‘the symptoms aren’t that bad with the vaccine.”
Fitzgerald posted a tweet Monday morning saying that “Allegheny County is always ready to lead the way.”
I am proud to be part of the @Moderna_tx trial with @HealthAllegheny Director Dr Bogen. The symptoms aren’t that bad with the vaccine & now @Moderna_tx is now going for @us_FDA approval. @Allegheny_Co is always ready to lead the way.
