QUICK READ: The government is agreeing to pay billions of dollars to the first company that developed a COVID-19 vaccine. We would like to think that any vaccine development will be within GMP and the drug approval process guidelines but when billions of dollars are at stake will the industry cut corners and who is going to be the watchdog?

U.S. health officials agreed to pay $1.95 billion for 100 million doses of a vaccine made by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE, the latest step in an effort to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The companies will receive payment upon the receipt of the doses, following regulatory authorization or approval, according to a statement. The government also can acquire up to an additional 500 million doses.
