The United States hopes to launch a massive Covid vaccination program in early December, the head of the government’s coronavirus vaccination effort said on Sunday.
“Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to vaccination sites within 24 hours of approval” by the US Food and Drug Administration, Moncef Slaoui told CNN.
“So maybe I’m waiting for the second day of approval, December 11 or 12.”
FDA vaccine advisers are reportedly meeting Dec. 8-10 to discuss the approval of vaccines that Pfizer and Moderna say are at least 95 percent effective.
