U.S. won’t need vaccine for upcoming few months
Jen Psaki described that given the robust portfolio of Coronavirus vaccines that America has already approved and that is available in huge quantities, including 2-dose vaccines and 1-dose vaccine, and given that AstraZeneca isn’t authorized for use in the U.S., they don’t need to use AstraZeneca in their country against Coronavirus in the upcoming few months.

The official further explained that there is a projected additional fifty million vaccine doses that are in different levels of production, and these could be done in stages across May and June.
