    Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said in a hearing on Wednesday his agency has already started getting data on vaccine safety from people who have been vaccinated. Marks said he expects data on the ongoing effectiveness of the vaccines in the next few months.
