German Minister of Health Jens Spahn and Research Minister Anja Karliczek stated that they expected a COVID-19 vaccine to be ready in 2021, DW reports.

However, it was noted that a vaccine would not be available to most of the population until the middle of the following year.

"We want a safe and effective vaccine, not necessarily to be the first," Spahn said.

Karliczek, in her turn, added that safety had absolute priority on that point.

Moreover, the European Commission plans to sign similar agreements with another four developers – GSK, Johnson & Johnson, CureVac, and Moderna.
