Following Moncef Slaoui’s resignation from Operation Warp Speed, Biden picks former F.D.A. chief to lead federal vaccine efforts.

David Kessler is the one who is going to take the lead and become the top science official for the Operation Warp Speed as the Trump administration named it.

David Kessler contributed in the development and approval of AIDS drugs back in the 1990s.

Under the request of president-elect Joe Biden, David Kessler was summoned to take the lead in accelerating the progress, manufacture and distribution of Covid-19 vaccines.

David Kessler headed the F.D.A. back in George Bush and Bill Clinton administration and was appointed the key adviser to Biden on Covid-19 policy.

The new team aims at fulfilling Biden’s promise to Americans of getting 100 million Covid vaccine shots into the arms of the American people by his 100th day in office.

Moncef Slaoui has fulfilled his promise of developing two separate Covid-19 vaccines which he has done in due time. However, he lagged behind in fulfilling Trump’s promise of vaccinating 20 million people by the end of 2020 and thus succeeded in vaccinating about 11 million people according to statistics by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
