Could We Have A COVID-19 Vaccine In Four Months? Scientists At Oxford Say It’s Possible.
Vaccines usually take at least a year (if not five or 10 years) to make.
But the race for a coronavirus vaccine is on — and one group of scientists is hoping to get it done in a matter of months.
A team at the University of Oxford says they can have a million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine ready by September.
If it works, it would be the fastest a vaccine has ever gone from development to distribution.
We ask a virologist how likely this timeline is and what it might mean for the United States if they succeed.
