CDC is asking local authorities to be ready to distribute the coronavirus vaccine by the month of November.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, has reported that ongoing clinical trials for a coronavirus vaccine could be interrupted.
This action is totally legitimate and, if the results are conclusive, it would make it available much faster.
For its part, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have already instructed local health officials in the 50 states of the United States to prepare to begin distributing a vaccine in November, reported the New York Times.

“Limited doses of the COVID-19 vaccine may be available in early November 2020, but the supply of the COVID-19 vaccine will increase substantially in 2021,” says the CDC report.
This would be the best-case scenario regarding how quickly a Covid-19 vaccine could become available.
At the moment, two of the most advanced clinical trials already being tested on 30,000 volunteers are expected to end before the end of the year. However, as Fauci has said, an independent board can make the decision to conclude the study before the results are totally positive.
As laboratories in the United States advance their respective investigations, President Trump made the decision not to participate in a global alliance for the development and distribution of a vaccine against the coronavirus.
Dr Juan Rivera reveals how alarming the US could do with the coronavirus vaccine (VIDEO)
Strong declarations! Dr Juan Rivera, renowned cardiologist and medical correspondent for Univisión, reveals that the US could approve coronavirus vaccine without testing.
Through your official account Instagram, where he has more than 670 thousand followers, Dr Juan Rivera shared a revealing video and asks himself the following question: “Could it be that the (coronavirus) vaccine is approved in the US without completing the studies?”
Without waiting long, the renowned cardiologist, who was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1976, he commented that one of the news he was reading that caught his attention has to do with the (coronavirus) vaccine and its approval.
“The commissioner, or director, of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) made a statement saying that he would be willing to approve the vaccine before the Phase 3 studies are finished.”
With a serious face, Dr Juan Rivera assured that this seems to him “something completely out of character and crazy”, since two weeks ago there was a strong criticism of Russia for being making a vaccine, approving it and giving it to the population without going through Phase 3 studies.
The Univision medical correspondent shared that these studies include a significant number of people, for example, in the case of Moderna (a biotechnology company), there are 30 thousand people: 15 thousand of them are given a placebo and the others 15 thousand are given the vaccine to compare and see its effectiveness, as well as its side effects.
In this way, the FDA, by analyzing those results, can decide whether to approve the vaccine or not.
“Many times they ask me if I’m going to get the vaccine and I say: ‘I want to wait for those results of the Phase 3 study, see what the effectiveness is and what the side effects are to make an educated decision about it. ‘”. Dr Juan Rivera would still have a lot to say.

Dr Juan Rivera assured that only after seeing the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccine, after the Phase 3 study, and seeing its side effects, could he give a recommendation to his patients.
“But the fact that an FDA official, the commissioner, says they would be willing to approve a vaccine before it goes through that Phase 3 review, I think something I’ve never heard before ”.
Without hiding his disagreement, the renowned cardiologist assured that if a coronavirus vaccine is approved without testing, it seems to him something that “is not smart” from the point of view not only of the safety of the population, but also puts the trust of the population at risk. people regarding treatments and vaccine development.
“We had already seen that a significant percentage of the population, in surveys that had been done previously, had said that they were not going to get the vaccine, perhaps we were talking about 50 percent,” commented the Univisión medical correspondent.
In addition, Dr Juan Rivera shared that in order to have that “herd immunity”, a significant percentage of people need to get the vaccine.
The conclusions of the renowned cardiologist give much to talk about.
“For us to be able to get people to trust the vaccine, we have to go through the proper process of science and we have to be able to explain to them: if they get the vaccine, this is the effectiveness, these are the possible side effects,” said Dr Juan Rivera , in addition to explaining that the side effects, in the Phase 3 study, occurred in “as much” percentage of the population
Finally, the renowned cardiologist assured that if this process is not passed, it will be very difficult for people to trust the effectiveness and safety of the coronavirus vaccine.
“Hopefully this was simply a comment, that it was not motivated by anything political and that, the most important thing really, is the data and the security of us Americans and the rest of the world when deciding whether to wear a vaccine or not and not simply a political decision ”.
