GLADWYNE, Pa.  —  Dr. Moncef Slaoui says the first Moderna vaccine will likely be given on Monday.

On CNN’s State of the Union, the Chief Scientific Adviser for Operation Warp Speed said he expects that to happen Monday morning.

He noted the Moderna vaccine will be easier to distribute because it doesn’t need to be stored at such a low temperature when compared to Pfizer’s vaccine.

However, Dr. Slaoui issued a warning to Americans even though he said there’s hope now that we have two vaccines.  He cautioned the pandemic will get worse as we deal with the surges during the holiday season.
