NH Gov: Nov. Vaccine Date Unrealistic, but State Will Be Ready

September 4, 2020

CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu thinks it’s unrealistic to believe a coronavirus vaccine will be available by Nov. 1 but says his state will be prepared to distribute it if it is.

Federal health officials last week instructed states to be ready to begin distribution by Nov. 1 — two days before elections. The timing raised suspicion among public health experts about whether the Trump administration intends to rush approval for political gain.

Sununu said Thursday that he disagreed with that suspicion and called the letter “a smart move.” He says it's good to ensure everyone is ready just in case.
