Earlier this month, the president called on his Democratic opponents to “immediately apologize for the reckless anti-vaccine rhetoric that they’re talking right now.".

Driving the news: “Let me be clear: I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump,” Biden said.

"What criteria will be used to ensure that a vaccine meets the scientific standard of safety and effectiveness?"

"If the administration greenlights a vaccine, who will validate that the decision was driven by science rather than politics?

"How can we be sure that the distribution of the vaccine will take place safely, cost-free and without a hint of favoritism?".

The bottom line: Biden said that if these three questions are answered, then he and others should "absolutely" take the vaccine.

Context: Before giving remarks, Biden had a virtual briefing with public health experts on developing and distributing a COVID-19 vaccine. »
