Yes, and available to who is also a factor. That post was in furtherance of a previous post that illustrated how folks are talking past each other. Sorta like now.All that says is that they expect to have the results of their latest clinical trials by November. It doesn't say anything about the vaccine actually being approved and available by November. There's a big difference between "ready" and "available".
There's some talking past each other out there. The White House says the vaccine will be *available this fall. I interpret that to mean the first distributed doses that will go to medical workers, military. Initial production will be less at first than after it's ramped up. So availability to the general public will be quite a bit later, which is what the other story in the news is. Neither one acknowledges the other. Read and assimilate both. And of course it might not be ready this fall either.
*Available, in the pipeline, not approved yet for public distribution. Not as in at your local CVS for free.
