Dr. Hotez on receiving the vaccine: ‘I just couldn’t help but think of the 300,000 Americans that lost their lives this year’

Dr. Peter Hotez joins Andrea Mitchell to talk about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and Moderna’s new data suggesting their vaccine may prevent asymptomatic spread. Dr. Hotez said, "There's two things we want a vaccine to do: keep us out of the hospital and the intensive care unit, and if enough Americans get vaccinated, potentially it could interrupt transmission if these vaccines halt asymptomatic transmission."
