Federal health agencies and the Department of Defense have revealed a coronavirus vaccine “playbook,” which outlined how shots will be administered across the U.S. This comes as several companies are nearing the final stage of vaccine trials.
Assistant HHS Secretary Brett Giroir has warned the progress made in the fight against the coronavirus could be undone if Americans don’t consistently follow pandemic guidelines. During Wednesday’s hearing before the Senate Appropriations Committee, the admiral touted improvements to the number of COVID cases across the nation.
Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson, Moderna and many other pharmaceutical companies are preparing a joint statement. They are hoping to assure Americans any vaccine created to protect U.S. citizens will undergo a rigorous vetting process before release.
