‘If everything is reopened, what’s the carrot going to be?’

Wen, the former president of Planned Parenthood, joined CNN host Chris Cuomo during a March 10 interview and emphasized the importance of making it “clear” to anyone apprehensive about taking the vaccine “that the vaccine is the ticket to pre-pandemic life.”
“The window to do that is really narrowing,” Wen continued. “You were mentioning, Chris, about how all these states are reopening. They’re reopening at 100%. And we have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status.”
