Why a University of Michigan professor voted ‘No’ on Pfizer’s COVID vaccine

DETROIT – The University of Michigan’s Dr. A. Oveta Fuller specializes in immunology and microbiology.

The FDA advisory committee that recommended the Pfizer vaccine largely agreed it was safe and effective. 17 members voted for it and four voted against it.

One of those No votes came from Oveta, a virologist and viral pathogen researcher. She said she was concerned about the vaccine’s long-term impact.

Metro Detroit weather: Cloudy Friday evening, rainy Friday night

Temperatures remain above freezing this evening and tonight and for much of the weekend. This is key because we are precipitation arriving. The higher temps mean rain instead of snow. Does become chillier but, fortunately, drier next week.
