COVID-19 Vaccine by Election Day?

COVID-19 Vaccine

In what could be a stunning development in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration is telling all 50 states to prepare for a COVID-19 vaccine by November 1st.

According to numerous publications including the Daily Beast, “The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has sent letters to all 50 state governors urging them to lay the groundwork for a coronavirus vaccine to become available by November 1, days before the 2020 presidential election.”

In urging the governors to prepare facilities for the distribution of the vaccine, the director, Dr. Robert Redfield, wrote, “CDC urgently requests your assistance in expediting applications for these distribution facilities, and, if necessary, asks that you consider waiving requirements that would prevent these facilities from becoming fully operational by Nov. 1, 2020.”

Further, the Daily Beast reports, “President Donald Trump has suggested there will be a vaccine available before the end of the year in multiple speeches. Responding to criticism that the Nov. 1 date reeked of political pressure, Dr. Stephen Hahn, leader of the Food and Drug Administration, tweeted, “We all recognize that the public will have confidence in our decisions only if they are supported by the science.””

True, there are those who will state this development “reeks” of politics. Then again, many more will welcome the early distribution of a vaccine that could save lives and allow the American economy to thrive once again.

What do you think? Would you welcome a vaccine just before election day? Please comment below.

    I am in favor of a vaccine. As a health professional, I think we really need to make every effort to stop the spread of Covid 19. We cant expect everyone to wear face masks forever. Some people are afraid to get the flu vaccine…there will always be negative opinions.. Let them get both the flu and the covid. Be smart, trust the national Health service. Why would they lie and deceive the American people? Its just as likely that the anti-vaccine side are being just as political since they hate Trump.
    Biden seems to be a old tottering has-been who is being used by the Democratic politicians. Frankly, I wouldnt trust any politician.
    Esp. one whos been around as long as Biden. He needs to go back to Delaware and get an honest job or just collect unemployment. Isnt he old enough to just collect SS and live off the millions he’s collected already?
    Lets let some younger Americans have a hand at running our government, they may not be carrying as much baggage!
