Companies like Pfizer and Moderna have been leading the charge on vaccinations for COVID-19, with Pfizer previously claiming their COVID-19 vaccine is 90% effective.
Now, the government has noted that the United States is expecting to start COVID-19 vaccinations by December 11, 2020. FDA vaccine advisors are reportedly set to meet from December 8 to 10 to discuss the approval of vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, which are allegedly 95 percent effective.
Dr. Moncef Slaoui, chief scientific adviser of Operation Warp Speed, says first Americans could receive a Covid-19 vaccine by December. "So I would expect, maybe, on day two after approval … hopefully the first people will be immunized across the United States." #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/UvQpPi0pl9
