WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) issued the following statement in response to congressional hearings being held today on Capitol Hill and chaired by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (Independent-Vermont), chairman of the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, regarding Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccination development and its subsequent immense profiteering off the drug:
“AHF salutes Senator Sanders for holding Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel to account for profiteering off the misery caused by COVID-19. Moderna benefited from billions in public funding and now is holding the world hostage while turning Bancel into a billionaire.”
