National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Francis Collins and Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams testified on vaccines before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Director Collins discussed ongoing clinical trials and said he is hopeful that a coronavirus vaccine could be ready by the end of the year and widely distributed in 2021. Both Director Collins and Surgeon General Adams discussed some of the challenges the government faces in distributing a vaccine which include misinformation about vaccines, and the current drop in general vaccination rates due to misinformation and distrust of government. Surgeon General Adams discussed the logistical challenges with distributing a vaccine and explained what is being done to address these issues. close
