WHY? Under no circumstances can ANY pharma company allow this administration to fastback a COVID vaccine for political purposes. To do so would derail our drug safety and lead to patients and HCP’s to question all prescription drug data. Pharma has to fight with everything in their arsenal.
QUICK READ: Major brands are often wary of conflict, especially in a polarized time. But some are now taking a stand on racial injustice and police violence. As more CPG post their support in Black Lives Matter and the peaceful protestors big pharma is nowhere to be found. Why? Simple…they want to protect their profits and don’t want to temp Republicans from turning on them.
KEY TAKEAWAY: On the surface, the drug companies won a battle against Senator Bernie Sanders as his bill to allow pharmaceutical distributors and pharmacists to import cheaper prescription drugs from Canada and other countries, but what is most alarming is that some Republicans sided with Democrats in voting against the measure.
