The Us To Use The Military To Dispense The COVID-19 Vaccine

In a statement on May 14, US President Donald Trump expressed his belief that there would be a vaccine against COVID-19 by the end of this year. 

He emphasized that the dispensing of vaccines was a major task and that the US military would be mobilized to deliver to many people quickly.

In an interview with Fox Business Network, the US leader affirmed that he would prioritize distributing the vaccine against SAR-CoV-2 virus to the elderly group first.

The White House is currently aiming to have 300 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine by the end of this year. A number of vaccines are being developed and clinically tested in humans, but none have yet been approved.

If the production and distribution of the vaccine goes well, it will be an important step to restart the US economy, in the context that many people are worried about the resilience of the world's largest economy. .

On the other hand, this could also regain US voters' confidence in the Trump administration, as the Republican candidate is somewhat "inferior" to Democratic rival Joe Biden in US Presidential election 2020.

However, according to the US National Center for Infectious and Allergic Diseases, Anthony Fauci, the possibility that the vaccine will be available next fall - when the schools reopen - is too far away.
