U.S. Army says reasonable to expect some sort of coronavirus vaccine by year-end

US News


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A senior U.S. army vaccine researcher said on Tuesday it was reasonable to expect that some sort of coronavirus vaccine could be available to some parts of the U.S. population by the end of the year.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper vowed on May 15 that the U.S. government would in collaboration with the private sector produce a vaccine to treat the American people and partners abroad by the year-end.

Col. Wendy Sammons-Jackson, director of the Military Infectious Disease Research Program, told a Pentagon news briefing it was “reasonable to expect that there will be some form of a vaccine that could be available at some level, to a certain population by the end of the year.”
