This is the September 23, 2020 hearing on "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]: An Update on the Federal Response," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. From the opening statement of Lamar Alexander: "The Trump administration's program to develop and deploy a vaccine against COVID-19 is on track to be an unprecedented sprint to success. The program called Operation Warp Speed will save lives without cutting corners on safety and efficiency. The COVID-19 vaccine development process is likely to produce its first tens of millions of doses within 1 year. The United States has never produced a vaccine that rapidly. [...] The Administration had set a stretch goal that once seemed impossible but now seems likely. The Administration hopes to have as many as 300 million doses of vaccines available to be deployed by mid-2021, according to an August 26 article by Operation Warp Speed program's principal adviser, Dr. Monsef Slowey, and vaccine expert, Dr. Matthew Hepburn, that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Anthony Fauci, Robert Redfield, Brett Giroir, and Stephen Hahn.
