A user with a profile picture of a Dr. Anthony Fauci doll asked: “If adenovirus vaccines [vaccines like the flu shot that give a weakened or inactivated germ] are given EUAs [emergency use authorization] will UAMS stock both those and the mRNA vaccines [a gene-based vaccine] or will you try to stick to just one type?”

Dr. Patterson replied, “Yes, I am sure we will stock all vaccines that are approved. We will need at least 3-4 vaccinations to get through this pandemic.”
