While the coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic continues to increase its impact worldwide, the US Covid-19 Vaccine Program President Moncef Slaoui received a comforting statement for the USA. Slaoui said, “There is light at the end of the tunnel.”
Stating that if the US people continue to comply with security measures against the epidemic, Slaoui expressed that he hopes that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will approve the vaccine developed against Kovid-19 at the meeting this week. .
Heading the Warp Speed Operation, the US vaccine development and distribution program against Kovid-19, Dr. Slaoui said, “The process with the FDA is deep and very important. I hope the FDA will make a positive decision based on the data I have. But this is their decision, of course. The first vaccine shipment will take place 1 day after the vaccine is approved.
WHO WILL THE VACCINE BE MADE FIRST?
After the FDA’s approval for the vaccine, the vaccine will first be available to healthcare professionals working in the country and more than 3 million elderly people living in nursing homes. But the states will decide which group will be vaccinated first.
Dr. Slaoui told the US media, “I think there will be a great improvement in the sensitive public in January and February. However, when looking at the population, it may take us to return to our normal lives from April to May. Therefore, it is very important for everyone to be comfortable with the fact that we have light at the end of the tunnel. “We must find the energy in this hope, continue to put on our masks, maintain social distance and wash our hands, and reach the next spring by taking advantage of the vaccine.”
