Intensive-care unit and lung doctor Dr. Vin Gupta told CNBC’s “The News with Shepard Smith” that patients should stop weighing the pros and cons of which Covid vaccine is better and get the first shot available into their arms as soon as possible, despite a new Israeli study that shows the Pfizer vaccine actually stops the spread of Covid.
“People are saying, maybe I want the Pfizer vaccine instead of Johnson & Johnson or a different one,” said Gupta, a professor at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, during a Monday evening interview. “That’s the wrong way to think about it. Brand here doesn’t matter. Get the first vaccine available.”
