Trump said there'll be a vaccine before the end of the year. 'I believe he said that correctly,' Anthony Fauci said of the US president's promise.

During the Presidential debate, Donald Trump said we'd have a vaccine before the end of the year. This was true—with a catch. Dr. Anthony Fauci , the nation's top infectious disease doctor, went on the BBC today to discuss COVID-19 with Andrew Marr , and said exactly when he thought you'd be

When Will We Get a Coronavirus Vaccine, According to Fauci?"I believe he said that correctly," Fauci said of Trump's promise."We will know whether a vaccine is safe and effective by the end of November, the beginning of December. But," he continued,"the question is, once you have a safe and effective vaccine or more than one, how can you get it to the people who need it as quickly as possible? So the amount of doses that will be available in December will not certainly be enough to vaccinate. Everybody, you'll have to wait several months into 2021. But what will happen is that there has been a prioritization set, so that individuals such as healthcare workers will very likely get first shot at that as well. Then likely people who are in the category of being at an increased risk of complications that could start by the end of this year, the beginning, January, February, March of next year."

"But when you talk about vaccinating, a substantial proportion of the population, so that you can have a significant impact on the dynamics of the outbreak, that very likely will not be until the second or third quarter of the year," he added. 

Marr then asked about the anti-science attitude in"today's America. How important is it that politicians and public figures set an example and follow the science?" Fauci answered:"Oh, I think it's very important because you know, we, we have a situation which is understandable. People look at what their leaders say and do, and you can positively or negatively influence behavior. One of the things I'm concerned about in the United States is that part of the anti-science translates maybe into anti-vaccine, particularly amongst some of the more vulnerable people like the minorities in our population. It would really be if we have a safe and effective vaccine, but a substantial proportion of the people do not want to take the vaccine because they don't trust the authority. That would really be unfortunate if that's the case."
