Dr. Fauci Says It Is ‘Quite Realistic’ To Have a Vaccine By the End of November

‘The beginning of December, we’ll know that a vaccine is safe and effective’


FAUCI: "No, I think it’s quite realistic, Chuck. Right now we have at least two of the six vaccines that the federal government has made a major investment in. Five of them are in phase three trial, which is a large trial to determine if the vaccine is effective and also safe. Two of these started the trial on July 27th, and they’re fully enrolled, ready to — collecting a lot of data. And the projection I’ve made, and I think I made it with you on Meet the Press some time ago, is that some time in November, December, most likely the end of November, the beginning of December we’ll know that a vaccine is safe and effective, and I’m cautiously optimistic that it will be. There will be doses that are already made and ready to go at the end of the year.”
