CDC Alerts States to Prepare for November Vaccine Distribution

FDA has not yet approved a vaccine

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) announced on Wednesday that states should begin ramping up infrastructure to distribute a vaccine for COVID-19. Robert Redfield, the Director of the CDC said that the vaccine could be ready as soon as November saying, “in the near future” states will receive permit applications from McKesson Corp – the company distributing the vaccine. 

Director Redfield also said the “CDC urgently requests your assistance in expediting applications for these distribution facilities and, if necessary, asks that you consider waiving requirements that would prevent these facilities from becoming fully operational by November 1, 2020.” Currently, no vaccines have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for COVID-19, though several candidates are being prepared for clinical trials.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would lead the CDC to bring about an end to the pandemic.
  • For Director Redfield to be given wisdom on how best to distribute any future vaccines.
  • For the Trump Administration to quickly find a cure for COVID-19.
