USA Tells States to get Ready for Coronavirus Vaccine:- The administration of Donald Trump informed the states in the country to get ready to distribute the vaccination for coronavirus by November 1st. This is just two days before the Presidential election of the country. McKesson Corporation, a Dallas based wholesaler is having a deal with the federal government and it has requested all the permits to distribute the coronavirus vaccine once it is available. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told that the normal time for obtaining these permits presents a significant barrier to the success of the health program.
Robert Redfield asked the states to get prepared to be operational by November 1st. The CDC will provide the documents about the vaccine rollout plan and they would be approved as a licensed vaccine or it can be used under emergency use. There are talks that the people would need a second dose as a booster after weeks after the first dose of coronavirus vaccine is given. The USA Government will give priority for essential workers, security officials, senior citizens, ethnic groups and others. Three drugmakers are in the final phase of clinical trials and they are testing the vaccine on thousands of participants. The three are AstraZeneca, Moderna and Pfizer.
