We told you about that last week.
Now the Trump administration has inked a $1.5 billion deal with my Moderna Inc., one of the companies already producing a vaccine before proof it works.
Trump said the company is on track to rapidly produce 100 million doses as soon as a vaccine is approved and up to 500 million shortly after that.
The deal with Moderna is part of “Operation Warp Speed” which is the government’s push to get a vaccine available as quickly and safely as possible.
If testing goes well experts say a vaccine will possibly be available to the public early next year.
As of today the World Health Organization says there are more than 24 Covid 19 vaccines in human trials right now.
