Enough Covid Vaccine For All Americans By March 2021
Health and human services secretary Alex Azar says there will be enough COVID-19 vaccine for all Americans by March after Pfizer revealed its jab may be 90 percent effective and President Trump accused the FDA of holding up the treatment until after the election.
Azar gave a timeline on Tuesday for when the coronavirus vaccine would be rolled out after Pfizer said a day earlier it was on track to apply later this month for emergency-use approval from the FDA.
‘Pfizer will be producing and delivering to us approximately 20 million doses of vaccine each month starting at the end of this month,’ Azar told NBC’s Today.
‘We have anticipated that we will have enough vaccine by the end of December to have vaccinated our most vulnerable citizens in nursing homes and otherwise.
‘By January, enough for all health care workers and first responders and enough for all Americans by the end of March to early April to have general vaccination programs.’
