CDC says states should prepare for possible vaccine distribution by late October

The CDC has told health officials to be ready to distribute a Covid-19 vaccine by late October or early November. Officials from all 50 states and five large cities were told to prepare the distribution of the vaccine to health care workers and other high-risk groups by that time.

The possibility of a rollout in the proposed timeline has heightened concerns that the Trump administration is seeking to rush the distribution of a vaccine — or suggest that one is near — before Election Day on November 3.
