President Trump said at a White House press conference on Friday the U.S. will produce enough coronavirus doses for "every American" by April 2021.

Trump said the U.S. will have at least 100 million doses before the end of 2020. The distribution of the vaccine will begin within 24 hours of its approval, Trump said.

"Hundreds of millions of doses will be available every month and we expect to have enough vaccines for every American by April and again I'll say even at that later stage, the delivery will go as fast as it comes," Trump said.

At the press conference, Stanford radiologist Dr. Scott Atlas confirmed hundreds of millions of doses would be ready by the end of 2020. Atlas also said the vaccine would available for "every single American who wants to be vaccinated" by April.
