Nov 22 (Reuters) – The head of the US COVID-19 vaccine program, Moncef Slaoui, said the first Americans to receive a coronavirus vaccine could do so as soon as December 11, according to an interview with the network. CNN this Sunday.

“Our plan is to be able to send the vaccines to the immunization posts within 24 hours of approval, so I’m hoping that maybe it will be day two after approval, December 11-12,” Slaoui said.
