On Wednesday, the US government has said that it will start distributing the COVID-19 vaccine immediately after regulatory authorization.
The Department of Defence and officials from the Department of Health and Human Services had released the distribution plans’ documents on Wednesday.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended vaccines will be allocated by the federal government for each state based on the critical populations.
“Limited COVID-19 vaccine doses may be available by early November 2020 if a COVID-19 vaccine is authorized or licensed by FDA by that time, but COVID-19 vaccine supply may increase substantially in 2021.”
Officials also said they were working to make sure that the patients did not have to pay for the vaccine.
