ANN ARBOR – Epidemiologist Fred Brown, in his final video interview, updates the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine that now has been approved for teenagers. He also talks about whether you should wear a mask inside and outside.

Brown has taken a position with a government agency that does not want him to release his studies ahead of the government. He may return from time to time to update the COVID picture, however.

Trained as a medicinal biochemist, Brown has been on the discovery, development and/or launch teams of 27 major pharmaceutical, 13 diagnostic and 6 vaccine products.  Collectively, these products save the lives of over 5.6 million people annually and generated over $35B of revenue in 2020.

Fred Brown comes to the fight against the COVID-19 virus from a forty year career developing pharmaceutical solutions to fight infectious diseases and solving the myriad challenges involved in suppressing epidemics including HIV, H5N1, Ebola, Zika, measles and malaria. His extensive experience managing past pandemics are accelerating and supporting personal, business and government responses to COVID-19 around the world.
