CDC says U.S. should have enough coronavirus vaccine to return to 'regular life' by third quarter of 2021
Dado Ruvic | ReutersThe U.S. should have enough Covid-19 vaccine doses for Americans to return to "regular life" by the third quarter of next year, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield told a Senate panel he expects vaccinations to begin in November or December, but in limited quantities with those most in need getting the first doses, such as health-care workers.
"If you're asking me when is it going to be generally available to the American public so we can begin to take advantage of vaccine to get back to our regular life, I think we're probably looking at third ... late second quarter, third quarter 2021," he told the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies.

Live updates: US election and SCOTUS news
As the US election draws near, the race between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden heats up. Here's the latest news around campaigns, SCOTUS vacancy, voting, and more.
YES!!! GREAT NEWS!!!!! Sorry I couldn't wait. I have returned to regular life already. Given that the COVID IFR (currently without a vaccine) is comparable to the flu (with a vaccine), why do we need to wait for a vaccine to return to normal? Ffs it’s 99.9% survivable! If Trump wins, 'regular life' would likely return in November (2020). If Biden wins, there will be no going back.
Fuck that Immunity threshold isn't too high. We may have enough vaccine by 1st quarter '21. Alas, 'return to 'regular life'' relies not on a vaccine or herd immunity but on government being willing to relinquish power. That won't happen until the people demand it and toss those who refuse Are the people at CDC being paid? Yes? So shut up and sit down, would-be tyrants.
We could return to normal life today, if we had the will. The truth is we can return to normal life immediately with no vaccine. We have been back to normal for months now.... no masks ...no vaccine. Where in the hell do you people live still wearing masks? Get bent. What about Sweden? Of course says the CDC threats with a vaccine, a vaccine distribution company.
Sir this is a Wendy’s But if Biden is elected, we will have all reached herd immunity, right? Is next year? The new one 2 weeks’ Assuming a high % efficacy nd high % of people take it. Only a year away? Ugh! By third quarter of 2021 👀 Nah I’m not gonna sit at home for another fucking year lol More bio-hazards from the CCP
NaphiSoc Yeah right. GMAFB!!!!!!! Not sure why there is so many doubters about the Covid vaccine. It’s happening whether you believe in it or not. BNTX will help us return back to normal! Only about another year. And by the way, who feels comfortable with this rushed vaccine?! Especially after Trump's propaganda machine!
THE CDCgov IS FAKE NEWS just one more year of covid19 . NP right ? 'should' ?
