Will the vaccine for Covid-19 be out by year-end? As the Republican National Convention wraps up on August 27, with POTUS Donald Trump accepting his nomination from White House and announcing a vaccine by end of year, the Internet is in splits and raised doubts regarding his claim. In addressing the ongoing pandemic, Trump promised a vaccine before the end of the year. He mentioned that the country is grappling with a powerful and invisible enemy, but promised the country would meet the challenge and produce a vaccine.

"We are delivering life-saving therapies, and will produce a vaccine BEFORE the end of the year, or maybe even sooner! We will defeat the virus, end the pandemic and emerge stronger than ever before," he said. He said as tweeted by GOP’s handle, “Most importantly, we are marshalling America's scientific genius to produce a vaccine in RECORD TIME. Under Operation Warp Speed we have three different vaccines in the final stage of trials.”



 

ABC News reported that the public health experts have raised concerns about politicizing the process of approving and distributing a vaccine, saying any perception that the process was rushed to help Trump in the election could reduce trust and make people reluctant to take the vaccine. Medical experts like Dr Anthony Fauci said it might take months after the vaccine is produced before it is made available to most of the public.
 
As soon as Trump claimed that the vaccine will be out by year-end, the Internet could not believe it and started calling the assertion a hoax. Bethany Mandel, an author, wrote if the vaccine will be like a surprise since its date is not mentioned. "Ivanka and Donald Trump both dropped sweeps week spoiler style hints about the timing of a vaccine. “By the end of the year... or maybe before.”  October surprise?"

 



 

A user called the promise a “hoax”. “Donald Trump just said he can promise a vaccine for COVID by the year's end. "Maybe sooner." BS!! I thought it was a hoax? Not a big deal!? Now 180,000 Americans are dead bc of his ignorance. Don't let him cost more lives. #TrumpChaos #DontTrustTrump.”



 

Others were also distrustful of POTUS. “Don’t believe Donald Trump when he says there’s a vaccine. It’s all so that he can win.”



 

A user critiqued Republicans over vaccine.“Republicans are anti science remember.”



 

However, some supported the POTUS, saying. "We need Donald J. Trump for 'FourMoreYears!' So, yeah, I’m sorry I didn’t vote for you in 2016, @realDonaldTrump I’m glad you won instead of whatshisname. And I’ll not repeat that mistake in #2020. #VoteRedToSaveAmerica2020 (P.S. please make HCQ OTC & no mandatory vaccine)"



 

A user urged to not take the vaccine, “Donald Trump just has all those people no masks no social distancing at the Republican convention covid-19 is a hoax the vaccine Is population control do not take the vaccine!”

 



 

Some went as far as saying there is no vaccine. “There is no vaccine people. Donald Trump lives in a delusional world.Donald Trump and his followers and his administration live on Earth 2. People of Goodwill who care about this planet who care for what's right live on earth 1. #RNC2020.”

 



 

NBC News reported after Trump's vaccine claims that there is no evidence that an effective vaccine will be delivered by year-end. It further mentions that there are currently four vaccines in clinical trials in the US, with the one from Moderna but it’s “impossible” to know if these vaccines will be effective.
