Dr. Gergory Poland of the Mayo Clinic was on the air with the "Len Berman and Michael Riedel In The Morning" show earlier today to talk about the time frame of a coronavirus vaccine, can the virus mutate, and if he is concerned with even deadly virus' that could infect the human race.
"My personal opinion in terms of a licensed vaccine is going to be the winter or later of 2021," said Dr. Poland after Michael asked him when he thinks we can see a vaccine for the coronavirus.
Michael also asked if we should still wear masks and practice social distancing during the winter once we have a vaccine to fight off other potential diseases.
"Where countries have taken masking and distancing seriously flu has essentially disappeared which hasn't happened in modern history," said Dr. Poland.
