Coronavirus vaccine would not be widely available in the US until late spring or summer of next year, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Robert Redfield, said during a Senate hearing on the government response to the pandemic on Wednesday.
According to him, the vaccine will be first available before the year-end, between November and December, in "very limited supply." It will be offered first to the most vulnerable Americans, and supply will increase over time.
Redfield estimated that about 80 million Americans with comorbidities would be most likely vaccinated before the general public.
