US President Donald Trump has announced that enough coronavirus vaccines will be available for "every American" to be immunized by April 2021. The military will start distribution as soon as Phase 3 trials are complete, he said.
“By April, every single American who wants to be vaccinated will have the ability to be vaccinated. It’s not a forced vaccination, of course,” said Dr. Scott Atlas, member of the White House coronavirus task force, asked by Trump to give specifics at Friday’s press briefing.
The announcement clarifies remarks made at Thursday’s briefing, where Trump and Atlas spoke about “hundreds of millions of doses” of a vaccine available sometime in the first quarter of 2021.
