Coronavirus vaccine update: Cases continue to rise globally; WHO says don’t expect vaccine distribution before mid-2021

“So realistically speaking, probably the second half, the middle of 2021 – maybe the second quarter, the third quarter of 2021 – is when we can start seeing doses actually flowing into countries so that they can start to immunize their populations,” she noted.
