Trump: 100M doses of coronavirus vaccine could be distributed by end of year


President Trump claimed on Wednesday that his administration was ready to distribute 100 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year, slapping down as he did so one of his top government health officials, who said it would not be generally available until the middle of 2021.

Trump has let it be known that he hopes a vaccine can be approved before the Nov. 3 election, which has become largely a referendum on a crisis that has killed almost 200,000 people in the United States.
