May 1, Fineko/abc.az. Hundreds of millions of doses of the COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine can be manufactured in the U.S. until next January.

He noted that although they are working quickly, they want to make sure that the vaccine is safe and effective.

"The production of the vaccine by the beginning of next year depends on its clinical trials. Currently, companies such as Conson & Conson, Moderna and the University of Oxford are working on a vaccine," said the infectious diseases specialist.

According to the New York Times, Oxford University has made even greater strides in developing a vaccine. It is expected that the University specialists will prepare several million doses of the vaccine by September.
