President Trump gave a press conference in the White House rose garden on Friday which focused on Operation Warp Speed and the effort to develop a vaccine.
The good news is that everything is moving on schedule and a vaccine should be available for certain segments of the population by December.

Operation Warp Speed Success As 20 Million Covid Vaccine Doses Expected In December
The White House’s Operation Warp Speed chief, Dr. Moncef Slaaoui, who is leading the Trump administration’s efforts to expedite vaccine development for the novel Wuhan coronavirus, said Friday that 20 million doses would be distributed in December.
On Monday, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer announced its leading candidate for a COVID vaccine proved 90 percent effective in late-stage large-scale clinical trials getting ready for public distribution.
Slaaoui said the U.S. could be on the verge of benefiting from two vaccines currently in the process of completing phase three trials, along with two therapeutics on their way to being granted emergency-use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by year’s end.
“I think it’s a remarkable achievement within a period of six to seven months,” Slaoui said in remarks delivered next to the president in the White House Rose Garden.

Trump deserves a lot of credit for this, not that the media will ever give it to him.
