PREPARE TO DISTRIBUTE
(CNN)The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has told public health officials around the United States to prepare to distribute a potential coronavirus vaccine as soon as late October. It also provided planning scenarios to help states prepare.
The documents were posted by The New York Times and the CDC confirmed to CNN it has sent them to city and state public health officials.
By the way, it does not mean that a vaccine will be distributed by the end of October. It simply means that they must start preparing for a vaccine that is not yet available, so that when it is available, the distribution network will be ready.

WHO GETS VACCINATED FIRST
They’ve also advised the states on who should get vaccinated first — healthcare professionals, essential workers, national security “populations” and long-term care facility residents and staff.
So pretty soon, those in the above categories will be without a job if they refuse to be vaccinated. Very sorry for those in the armed forces who will be “sitting ducks” and have no choice but to take it.
CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said it’s simple preparedness.
“Right now I will say we’re preparing earnestly for what I anticipate will be reality … that there’ll be one or more vaccines available for us in November, December — and we have to figure out how to make sure they’re distributed in a fair and equitable way across the country,” Redfield said during an interview with Yahoo Finance.
