No vaccine has been formally approved, but Trump said one could be available to the general public as soon as April.
According to the president, Pfizer is set to provide 100 million doses with the option to buy 600 million more. As of Monday, Trump said Pfizer’s vaccine was 90% effective.
Frontline workers, the elderly and high-risk individuals get the vaccine first. However, New York will not get the vaccine.
