Operation Warp Speed’s vaccine chief Moncef Slaoui said that the first Americans to be vaccinated for COVID-19 will get the shot the second week of December. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval,” Slaoui said.
“I would expect maybe on day two after approval, on the 11th or on the 12th of December. Hopefully, the first people will be immunized across the United States, across all states, in all the areas where the State Departments of Health will have told us where to deliver the vaccine,” Slaoui told CNN‘s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday.
