Surveillance: J&J Pause Impact Unclear, Bernstein Says
Jared Bernstein, White House Council of Economic Advisers Member, says the White House can’t yet determine what sort of impact the recommended pause in the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine would have on it’s vaccination target and economy. Dr. Peter Hotez, Baylor College of Medicine National School of Tropical Medicine Dean, says the U.S. pause of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine could lead to a negative impact on the global vaccination effort. Adam Posen, Peterson Institute President, says we shouldn't worry about inflation yet. Simona Mocuta, State Street Senior Economist, says we shouldn't dismiss food inflation.
