The president says the CDC director is “ confused ” about the 2021 vaccine schedule

Trump also criticized his director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Robert Redfield, who described him as “confused” for his suggestion that the Covid-19 vaccine would not be delivered until late 2021, in contradiction to his promises.

“He probably misunderstood the question,” the President told reporters at the White House of Dr. Redfield’s testimony to the Senate earlier in the day:

Trump said he “got the impression” that Dr. Redfield did not mean to say what he said earlier in the day from a later call he had with the head of the CDC.

Dr. Redfield also told senators that wearing a mask is, at this point, more effective than a vaccine that has not yet been published.

Trump responded to that when asked Wednesday evening, saying, “I think there are a lot of problems with masks,” claiming that the vaccine would be more effective in beating the disease. But then he added, “Maybe the mask will help.”
