Dear Editor:

I have appreciated Dr. Galvin's medical column in your paper. But when he expresses his views on topics with a political aspect, his usually clear insights seem to fail him. In his diatribe against Democratic party leaders and their early reluctance to endorse the Covid-19 vaccine, he forgets that at the time those statements were made, nobody knew much about the safety of any of the vaccines. I think he would agree that the safety of a drug is of paramount importance in the decision of whether to authorize its use. The CDC decision to briefly pause the distribution of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine was done out of an abundance of caution and seems reasonable to me.
