Dr. Anthony Fauci doubles down on criticism of 'rushed' UK vaccine approval, then apologizes, claiming a 'misunderstanding'

Al Drago/AFP via Getty Images Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday UK regulators were too quick to authorize Pfizer and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine — but later apologized for his comments. He initially told Fox News that UK regulators had not scrutinized data from Pfizer's trials as "carefully" as the US Food and Drug Administration. In a later interview with CBS, he doubled down on his criticism, saying the UK "really rushed through that approval." "They kind of ran around the corner of the marathon and joined it in the last mile," he said. Fauci then walked back his comments in a BBC interview later on Thursday.
