Interview Transcript (modified slightly for readability):

And so, our goal is to ensure that we work with those vaccine implementers to ensure that they stock the vaccine, have it readily available, and ensure that they can deliver those vaccines to patients or subjects or individuals who come in and are appropriate to be vaccinated.”
