As an increasing number of states continue to loosen restrictions for COVID-19 living, the country’s need for a vaccine also continues to grow. Fortunately, President Trump expects vaccines will be available by December despite claims by medical officials who claim it will take closer to 18 months.
In a recent statement to Fox News, the president said, “I think we’ll have a vaccine by the end of the year,” continuing that he is ” “very confident” in the assessment…. We’ll have a vaccine much sooner rather than later.”
Some professionals are expressing concerns about fast tracking such a vaccine, claiming that expedited human trials could introduce untold risks to the greater population. Yet Trump feels confident in this path.
The president told Fox News that he felt confident volunteers for the human trials understood the associated risks and wanted to be involved for the greater impact of society. Trump stated, “they’re volunteers. They know what they’re getting into … They want to help the process.”
Speaking to a broader issue, Trump also claimed that The United States will be self reliant for antibiotics and will no longer need China to supply vital medications. Republicans expect this shift to take just 2 years – an aggressive target, but allegedly achievable.
