FAUCI: "The plan for the rollout was at the September 20th, the week of September 20th. That would actually be about eight months from the time the very first people in this country got their vaccinations in January. So that's the eight-month issue. But remember, we had said, and we continue to abide by it, that the ultimate implementation of that will be according to the regulatory aspect of the FDA and the recommendations of the ACIP, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. So, although the plan for eight months is still there, we're still planning to do that, there very well may be a range of time when the recommendations are being made. So I don't think there's a situation that it is now immutable that we may not be able to change it, but we are certainly still planning for eight months."
