A vaccine for COVID-19 will begin to be available in the U.S. “probably by the end of the second week in December,” according to Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Initially, Redfield told Fox News’ Dana Perino, the vaccine will be made available “in a hierarchical way” with a focus on “nursing home residents and then some combination of health care providers and individuals at high risk for a poor outcome.”
