Coalition members also say that Americans should receive the flu vaccine as soon as possible, according to the graphic.

Don’t expect a vaccine for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to show up on November 1 this year, say healthcare experts. The MJH Life Sciences COVID-19 Coalition does not believe that a COVID-19 vaccine will be released by then, while identifying engagement and uptake as the top challenge to the US Department of Health and Human Services vaccine distribution strategy. Coalition members also say that Americans should receive the flu vaccine as soon as possible, according to the graphic.

The Coalition is a partnership with 10 nationally recognized experts in infectious disease, public health, epidemiology, and virology, who work to generate the most accurate, up-to-the-minute information on the pandemic’s ever-evolving impact on health care professionals and the patients they treat through live, webinar events every two weeks, white papers, and surveys.

The next COVID-19 event, "Navigating the COVID-19 Treatment Landscape," will be held October 13, 2020, at 6PM ET. Register here.
