Trump Set to Deliver Vaccine in Mid-October

September 17, 2020 Updated: September 19, 2020

President Donald Trump says vaccines are close to being ready. They are awaiting FDA approval and can begin distribution as early as mid-October. His comments contradict those given by CDC Director Robert Redfield earlier in the day. The president said he thought Redfield must have been mistaken.

Redfield issued a statement late Wednesday to clear up confusion over his comments on virus vaccine readiness and the importance of wearing a mask.
