Dr. Anthony Fauci said it’s “conceivable” but not likely that there will be a coronavirus vaccine ready by October.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has told public health officials around the US to prepare to distribute a potential coronavirus vaccine as soon as late October. But today, asked about that timeline, Fauci said November or December is more likely.
“These are all guess-taminets,” he told CNN’s Jim Sciutto.
“It is conceivable that you could have it by October, though I don’t think that that’s likely,” Fauci added.
