“Once the FDA approves the vaccine … we can distribute 100 million doses by the end of 2020, a large number (of those doses will be distributed) much sooner,” the president said in a speech at briefing.
Earlier on Wednesday, Robert Redfield, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said that it will be possible to widely provide Americans with the COVID-19 vaccine only by the middle of next year or even a little later..
When asked by a journalist to comment on the CDC director’s statement, Trump suggested that Redfield’s words could be misinterpreted or that he made a mistake announcing the timing of the vaccine distribution..
Representatives of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Defense on Wednesday, in an interview with reporters, assured that the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine will begin within 24 hours from the moment the regulatory authorities are approved. A limited number of vaccine doses are expected to be available by the end of 2020.
