(AmericanProsperity.com) – Leaders all across the globe have tried different methods to stop the novel coronavirus. However, none have fully contained the infection’s spread, but many have greatly restricted personal freedoms without solving the problem. One hope to end the global pandemic is manufacturing and distributing a safe and effective vaccine.
That’s what President Donald Trump is doing for America.
The US government secured up to 600 million doses of a potential COVID-19 vaccine this week. In a partnership with Pfizer and BioNTech, these vaccines will be distributed to Americans for free as part of Operation Warp Speed. But, this hinges upon the vaccine being deemed safe and effective for emergency use by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
UPDATE: We're proud to announce an agreement with @HHSGov @SecAzar under Operation #WarpSpeed for up to 600M doses of our #COVID19 vaccine candidate currently in development with @BioNTech_Group.@BARDA @JPEOCBRND @PHEgov

To secure the first 100 million doses, the US government paid $1.95 million, however, the payments could rise if they secure an additional 500 million.
Tremendous progress being made on Vaccines and Therapeutics!!!

Scientists, politicians, and American citizens continue to grapple with how to keep what makes our nation great moving forward while keeping one another safe. While it’s heartening to see our president working to protect America, only time will tell if this additional government spending will produce the desired result.
