Fauci Forecasts Widespread Vax Availability By April

Business Insider reports:

Every American could have access to a COVID-19 vaccine before the end of April, Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN on Tuesday night. On Monday, Pfizer announced that the vaccine it had developed had succeeded in the final stage of clinical trials, marking a major milestone in the global race for a vaccine. The drugmaker said the vaccine was found to be 90% effective at preventing COVID-19.

Without mentioning Pfizer specifically, Fauci predicted that authorities would begin offering a vaccine as early as late November and that frontline healthcare workers would get it first. “It is likely, though the final determination has not been made, that healthcare providers who put themselves in harm’s way to take care of individuals will be of the highest priority,” he said.
