BREAKING: Vaccine Slowed Down, "Unlikely" Before Election Day

Donald Trump has put a lot of stock in the hope that the coronavirus vaccine will become available before Election Day. Trump has been open about how he thinks he will get credit for the vaccine and that it will propel him to reelection. In recent days it has become increasingly unlikely that the vaccine will be released before November 3rd. The FDA has announced it will be tightening up the authorization standards for a vaccine emergency use authorization, which will likely delay until the release until the end of the year or early 2021.

This matters for two major reasons: Firstly, this matters from a public health perspective. We need a vaccine as soon as possible and it is unfortunate that it’s going to take longer than some had hoped. Secondly, this matters politically because Trump wants to take credit for a vaccine. Amazingly, the delay may have been a result of Trump’s impatience. The agency is issuing the guidance to boost transparency and public trust as health experts have become increasingly concerned that the Trump administration might be interfering in the approval process.
