19. The way I understand it is the federal government is paying these companies

make the vaccine before its final phase so if it works there will be millions of doses ready. That does not mean that any of these vaccines will work. This is a new approach. Usually, a company would have to do this on its own and it would cost them too much so they wait until they get the okay from the government that their vaccine may be given to people. This is a novel coronavirus.
