December Covid-19 BriefDecember 2020
UPDATE: With 20 million Americans slated to be vaccinated in mid-December and another 30 million every month thereafter, there is hope of some semblance of normalcy returning to the US as soon as May.
“On the 11th or on the 12th of December, hopefully the first people will be immunized across the United States, across all states,” Operation Warp Speed Chief Science Adviser Dr. Moncef Slaoui told CNN’s State of the Union.
Health care workers and highly vulnerable people will be first, but “it is each state that will decide … who they will vaccinate,” Slaoui said.
The CDC continues to strongly urge vigilant hand hygiene, utilizing infection prevention controls and promotes efforts to educate the public on the appropriate use of antimicrobials for protection against the Covid-19 virus.
