I just read a piece from “We Roar” from Spring of 2020, in which Dr. Douglas predicted a COVID-19 vaccine was probably years away from development. Dr. Douglas’ impeccable credentials make me curious to hear his thoughts now that nearly half the country has already been vaccinated, but I cannot locate any comments from him on the current state of the three vaccines readily available in the U.S. Anyone can be wrong — even experts — but my intent is not to criticize him but merely to know if he thinks the vaccines are the result of unprecedented diligence in the research community or a panacea that was rushed to market to expedite the reopening of the economy. He was pretty clear and concise in his prediction last year when, nine months after his remarks on “We Roar,” the first inoculations were being given.
