President Donald Trump has recently given a promising update on the Coronavirus vaccine and has said that the American military will be mobilized to distribute the vaccine once it’s ready.

Trump has also explained that it is necessary to have a vaccine distribution plan, otherwise millions of Americans will not be able to receive it. The US military personnel will reach every part of the country and they will be trained to inject the syringe of coronavirus vaccine to make them immune. It will be a massive operation where millions of Americans will be provided the coronavirus vaccine by the military.
