The White House unveiled its distribution plans Thursday for two coronavirus vaccines developed through Operation Warp Speed that proved effective in large-scale phase three clinical trials.

The pharmaceutical giant Pfizer announced the week after the election that its coronavirus vaccine candidate proved 90 percent effective. The news was quickly followed by an announcement from biotechnological company Moderna that its vaccine candidate showed to be 94.5 percent effective.
