Vaccine possible by January 2021 in the US
The Trump administration’s program to accelerate the development of a potential coronavirus vaccine, called “Operation Warp Speed,” has the goal to manufacture hundreds of millions of doses by January — which is in the realm of possibility, according to the nation’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In a Thursday morning appearance on the Today Show, Fauci said that he is part of the team involved in that project.
