CDC Is Asking States to Prepare for COVID-19 Vaccines
The U.S. Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has asked the 50 states’ public health officials to be ready to distribute potential COVID-19 vaccines to high-risk people, healthcare workers and others as soon as late October, as showed in a document yesterday.
The New York Times (NYT) has also reported today that the CDC has contacted the officials in the 50 states.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious disease expert, has also confirmed the news to MSNBC. He stated that with the patient enrollment rate for COVID-19 vaccine trials underway there could be enough clinical data to know by November or December that a vaccine is safe and effective.
