“The very vaccine that’s one of the two that has absolutely exquisite levels 94 to 95% efficacy against clinical disease and almost 100% efficacy against serious disease that are shown to be clearly safe — that vaccine was actually developed in my institute’s vaccine research center by a team of scientists led by Dr. Barney Graham and his close colleague, Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, or Kizzy Corbett,” Fauci told the forum.

“Kizzy is an African American scientist who is right at the forefront of the development of the vaccine.”
