"By the end of December, we expect to have about 40 million doses of these two vaccines available for distribution pending FDA authorization, enough to vaccinate about 20 million of our most vulnerable Americans," Azar told reporters, referring to Food and Drug Administration.

He said production would "continue to ramp up after that” and the U.S. has "reasons for optimism" as it continues to be hardest hit by the virus that originated in China last year.
