US authorities have promised Americans “almost free” vaccination

The vaccine to prevent COVID-19 infection will be “almost free” for Americans. The start of vaccination is expected no later than January next year. The distribution of the drug will begin “on an emergency basis” 24 hours after approval from the FDA, said Scott Atlas, adviser to US President Donald Trump.

An official who is part of the White House pandemic working group stressed that starting vaccinations in January is “a top priority.”

“In the first 24 hours after approval, the vaccines will be delivered. It will be practically free for Americans, ”said Atlas.

The drug will be distributed among citizens “at risk”. We are talking about older Americans and emergency workers who are directly involved in health care work. “Will be done as soon as possible.”

Earlier, President Donald Trump announced the preparation of a plan for the distribution of the vaccine among the population. According to him, the process should begin in mid-October or a little later.

Trials of the AstraZeneca vaccine were suspended in the United States a few days ago. Authorities have worried about the side effects the drug caused during testing in the UK.

Anti-vaccination sentiment is growing in the world, fueled by misinformation about the coronavirus. Against the background of the outbreak of the disease out of control, a decisive fight against this phenomenon is necessary, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said yesterday.
