Dr. Fauci Throws Cold Water on Trump Claim of Vaccine by Year’s End

Is another fight between Trump and Fauci on the way?

President Trump has been pushing the possibility of a coronavirus vaccine emerging in the next several months, but one of the nation’s top epidemiologists doesn’t think that this is likely…or even possible.

Trump has been lambasted by the liberal media over his repeated claims that a COVID-19 vaccine could be available by election day, with pundits claiming that this is the President’s way of trying to drum up extra support for him ahead of the crucial November contest.  The Commander in Chief has insisted that he is simply working a expediently as possible on an issue that demands just such an approach.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is no stranger to being at odds with the President, seems to have his doubts about that possibility.

White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday a coronavirus vaccine probably won’t be ready by the U.S. presidential election even as the Centers for Disease and Prevention asks states to ready distribution facilities by Nov. 1.

At a health conference, Fauci said it’s more likely a vaccine will be ready by “the end of the year” as drug companies Moderna and Pfizer race to complete patient enrollment for their late-stage vaccine trials by the end of September.

“It’s unlikely we’ll have a definitive answer” by the Nov. 3 election, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said at the Research! America 2020 National Health Research Forum.

The comments are also at odds with President Donald Trump, who suggested at a press conference Monday that a vaccine could be ready for distribution by Election Day.

Fauci and Trump have publicly quarreled over several aspects of the coronavirus pandemic, and there is little doubt that this statement by the nation’s top infectious disease doc could bring another brouhaha to The Beltline.
