Fauci 'hopeful' vaccine will be available in early 2021

United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Tuesday that he is "aspirationally hopeful" a vaccine against COVID-19 will be available to the public early next year.

Speaking at a Senate hearing, Fauci pointed out that there is "no guarantee" that an effective vaccine will be found. The expert added that he expects to know more about the effectiveness and scope of potential COVID-19 vaccines in the winter or early in 2021.

Fauci also pointed out that a vaccine may not be enough to create herd immunity in the US as he foresees 30% of citizens will refuse to be vaccinated.
