(LibertySociety.com) – President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed for a coronavirus vaccine has been very successful. On Monday, November 16, one of the drug manufacturers involved made a big announcement that will make COVID-19 vaccine distribution a lot easier.
According to Moderna, the company’s coronavirus vaccine is 94.5% effective. CEO Stéphane Bancel said the drug manufacturer has been working hard to protect as many people as possible with their vaccine, and that the interim analyses of the trial data shows just that. They will now apply for emergency use authorization (EUA) from the FDA.
What’s even better is that doctors can store the vaccine at higher temperatures which will make it easier to distribute. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar praised the news.

President Trump’s administration has provided roughly $2 billion for the development and distribution of a vaccine. His leadership was instrumental in the creation of these potential treatments. It will likely go down as one of his biggest achievements.
