ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Leading Maryland health officials and lawmakers are preparing for at least six to eight months before a coronavirus vaccine can be distributed in a best-case scenario.
The legislature's panel on COVID-19 met Wednesday for an update on preparations for distributing a vaccine. Senate President Bill Ferguson says he spoke with one of the principal investigators at Johns Hopkins University who is working on a vaccine now in its third phase. Ferguson says while there has been remarkable progress, the nation is still at least six to eight months from emergency approval of a vaccine before there will be distribution.
