USA media: CDC urging states to prepare for vaccine

State of the Coronavirus:Pittsburgh US states asked to be ready to distribute coronavirus vaccine by November 1: Report

A Covid-19 vaccine by election day in the US?

Despite his concerns, Shah said the state has been developing a system for receiving and distributing a vaccine, with front line health care workers, first responders, and long-term care facility residents and workers, at the top of the distribution list for receiving the vaccine. The CDC documents describe two vaccine candidates that must be stored at temperatures of minus 70 and minus 20 deg C. Those storage requirements match profiles of candidates from Pfizer and Moderna.

In preliminary trials on dozens of test subjects, both vaccines provoked immune responses. "That means that you know that when you give it to a large group, your research has indicated that 50% of them will be protected", said Harris.

The move came in line with the global race for a COVID-19 vaccine.

- What would lead to approval?

Through COVAX, vaccines that have passed regulatory approval or World Health Organization prequalification will be delivered equally to all participating countries, proportional to their populations. If the vaccine works, over time more of those receiving the placebo will naturally become infected with and sickened by the coronavirus, but fewer cases will appear among those receiving the real vaccine.

"It would likely be for folks who are at highest risk for COVID-19", Wiesman said.

Richard Hatchett, CEO of CEPI, said that two COVID-19 candidates, supported by COVAX initiative, are already undergoing clinical trials in South Africa, to help ascertain their efficacy and safety.

Some health experts warned against its use as the "Sputnik V" vaccine - named in homage to the world's first satellite launched by the Soviet Union - had not completed its phase-three trial, which involves wide-scale testing with thousands of participants.

"That's the objective of these studies to determine how effective is the vaccine going to be, how safe is it going to be, and which populations are going to benefit the most", she said. First, not enough people will get the vaccine.

But it is clear the White House is aiming for earlier. At the Republican National Convention, President Donald Trump said a vaccine could be ready "before the end of the year or maybe even sooner".

Russian Federation also recently approved the limited distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine, trollishly dubbed Sputnik V, after the Soviet satellite that beat the United States into orbit in 1957.

And the administration has pre-purchased hundreds of millions of vaccine dosages to get them out to the public as fast as possible.

"That's unlikely, not impossible", Fauci told CNN. "We want to end the acute phase of the pandemic by the end of 2021", said Hatchett.

"The FDA can pull rank and issue an EUA", Mills said. "The priority here is saving lives".
