Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday that, while there is never a guarantee for a safe or effective vaccine, he is confident about how well the process is going in developing more than one COVID-19 vaccine candidate.

In an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, Fauci said early vaccine testing in animals and Phase I testing in humans “looks quite promising,” adding he is “cautiously optimistic” as we head into the summer.

As advanced clinical trials begin, Fauci explained there may be “at least one and close to maybe three or more (vaccine) candidates.”

By mid to late fall, if the process goes well, he said there would be enough information to decide whether a vaccine is safe and effective.

“If we are in good shape and that happens, we could have a vaccine either by the end of this calendar year or in the first few months of 2021,” Fauci said. “That’s the thing that makes me feel confident that the process is really on track and that’s good news, again in the context of never being able to guarantee success, things are clearly going in the right direction.”
