As soon as the vaccine against the new type of coronavirus infection is ready, the United States plans to distribute about 100 million doses.
The United States plans to announce the readiness of the American vaccine against the coronavirus infection COVID-19 in the near future. Such a promise was made on Thursday by US President Donald Trump during the final round of televised debates with Democratic candidate Joseph Biden at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.
вЂњWe have a vaccine that is coming soon. It is ready. It will be announced within weeks and it will be distributed to Americans,вЂќ Trump said.
As the American leader noted, the Pentagon is engaged in the distribution of the vaccine in the country. He also listed companies that are developing the vaccine. Among them are Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer, and others.
At the same time, NBC correspondent Kristen Welker asked Trump why officials involved in the development of the vaccine said that the drug will not appear in the United States until 2021.
вЂњNo, I think my timing is more accurate. I don't know if they are counting on the military to distribute the vaccine the way I do,вЂќ Trump said.
Also, Trump said that as soon as the vaccine is ready, 100 million doses of the vaccine will be produced.
