Covid-19 Vaccine

The first Americans could receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as 24 hours after the FDA grants approval, which would kick off the largest inoculation campaign in U.S. history starting in early December.

Slaoui had previously said he expected to immunize 20 million people in the month of December and as many as 30 million additional people could receive a vaccine each following month.

On 11 August, Russia became the first country in the world to register a coronavirus vaccine, dubbed Sputnik V. The vaccine, which is based on a human adenoviral vector platform, was developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology and is now completing phase 3 clinical trials.

The US Food and Drug Administration's outside advisers will meet on 10 December to discuss whether to authorise the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and German partner BioNTech for emergency use.

He also said that based on plans, the amount of the population who need to be vaccinated for life to return to normal is likely to happen in May. Pfizer has said that it also in the process of securing approvals from regulators around the world.

Russian Federation became the first country to register the world's first COVID-19 vaccine on August 11.

He said that by May, with potentially 70% of the population having been vaccinated, the country could attain "herd immunity", meaning the virus can no longer spread widely - and that people can move closer to resuming their pre-coronavirus way of life. If that goes well, Slaoui, expects most kids will be able to get vaccinated by the middle of next year, though infants may not be approved until the end of 2021. "That is likely to happen in the month of May or something like that based on our plans."He continued: "I really hope and look forward to seeing the level of the negative perception of the vaccine decrease and people's acceptance increases".

Mr Biden warned last week that "more people will die if we don't coordinate".

More than 193,000 new cases were reported in the USA on Saturday - the first time the country has topped 190,000 cases in a day.

Fauci cautioned that vaccines have to come, they have to be deployed and fundamental public health measures can't be abandoned.

The highest-priority groups, which include health care workers, the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions, will get the vaccine first.
