    Trudy Lieberman, Community Health News Service|Updated Jun 11, 2020

    How soon will there be a vaccine to protect people from the coronavirus? That’s the question uppermost on the minds of many Americans, especially the elderly and others especially at risk for a severe bout of the disease. Everyone wants the vaccine yesterday.
