Rosen Comments on Prospects for COVID-19 Vaccine This Year

30 July 2020 Memphis Business Journal News

Partner David Rosen was quoted in a Memphis Business Journal article, “A COVID-19 vaccine this year? It’s a long shot, but it’s possible,” about drug companies considering the use of a little-known regulatory tool to push their COVID-19 vaccines into Americans’ hands before the end of the year.

 

Rosen, who chairs the firm’s FDA regulatory practice, said the government’s decision to enact the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act in response to the COVID-19 outbreak limits the legal repercussions that drugmakers could face if their COVID-19 products cause physical injury, death and other ill effects to users.
