Covid19 vaccine is almost ready to be released on December

Dr. Anthony Fauci, a 79-year-old director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says in a video recording that a COVID-19 vaccine could be available as soon as next month. They said the video was recorded Thursday but released Friday by the Greater Baltimore Medical Center

“We could begin vaccinating people before the end of this calendar year,” Fauci said, also noting that healthcare workers and other vulnerable people at risk would be the first to receive the doses as early as December this year. 

Although he mentioned the exact timeline regarding the vaccine distribution, he is very optimistic that there will already be information by December. He also noted by the nation’s leading expert on infectious disease is that amidst his optimism for a vaccine’s early release, restrictions such as social distancing will remain as the new normal until about another year. 

Two vaccines already in the third phase of trials 

As of now, there are six vaccines currently being tested; five are in phase three trials. Two of those vaccines, according to Dr. Fauci, have already entered the third phase in July. The two vaccines leading the practices are highly likely to be in use in either November or December, with a very little chance that they could be available this month. He noted that many of the population do not believe in vaccines, so he asked them to trust medicine. 

The 79-year-old director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who became a familiar figure due to his involvement in many COVID-19 briefings and interviews, has been named one of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2020.  

Medical expert remained relentless, despite the distrust from some

During the pandemic’s early stages, Fauci and other experts recommended that the general public not wear face masks to prevent a shortage of critical equipment to healthcare workers due to hoarding. However, new data surfaced where experts concluded that not wearing a face mask could transmit the virus even from asymptomatic people, and Fauci immediately countered his previous advice. This change, in an opinion, made President Trump at odds with Fauci

Despite it all, Fauci stays focused on his work.

I would never be muzzled about anything when it comes to science and evidence and the facts,

Fauci said during an interview on Fox News on Sept. 9.
