‘Millions of vaccine doses could be ready by January’

Dr Anthony Fauci said Thursday that it is possible that hundreds of millions of doses of a coronavirus vaccine could be ready by January as the Trump administration seeks to speed vaccine development.

Asked by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie whether it is “in the realm of possibility” for hundreds of millions of vaccine doses to be ready by January, as the administration’s new Operation Warp Speed envisions, Fauci said, “I do.”

“We want to go quickly, but we want to make sure it’s safe and it’s effective,” he added. “I think that is doable if things fall in the right place.”

Fauci, a key member of the White House coronavirus task force, noted that a major step in meeting that timeline is to start manufacturing a potential vaccine even before the trial results showing whether it works are completed. (The Hill)
