WASHINGTON— During today’s Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee hearing on efforts to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) pressed pharmaceutical executives on their companies’ manufacturing capacity for a potential vaccine and what they are doing to ensure they will be able to meet the demand.

“We’re responding better than any other country out there. We’re testing more, we’re developing more, and the rest of the world is depending on our country to find the vaccine,” Mullin said during the hearing.

All five witnesses stated they are increasing their manufacturing capacity within the United States and not relying on China for any of the products in the U.S. supply chain.
