CORONAVIRUS/VACCINES: “Through Operation Warp Speed, my administration provided a total of $14 billion to accelerate vaccine development and to manufacture all of the top candidates in advance. This included a nearly $2 billion investment in Pfizer to produce 100 million doses of the vaccine, with an option to produce 500 million additional doses, and I’m proud to say that we have made sure that this vaccine will be free for all Americans…

When the China virus invaded our shores, I promised that we would produce a vaccine in record time before the end of the year. They said it couldn’t be done, but with today’s announcement, we have now achieved that goal. The United States is the first nation in the world to produce a verifiably safe and effective vaccine.”
