REPORTER: "And then, on a separate topic: Yesterday, Dr. Jha said that people who are at high risk for developing a severe case of Covid are eligible for Paxlovid. And the Vice President just got her second booster shot. She has no symptoms. Can you help us understand why she’s taking it?"
PSAKI: "Well, he also said, which you didn’t include in your summary there, but — that you should consult with your doctor, and she consulted with her doctor. She has been given Paxlovid. That’s something many Americans may be eligible for; they should also consult with their doctor. And I think, overall, we’re just grateful that this is an approved drug on the market that many people can benefit from, including the Vice President."
