McKesson to Distribute Vaccine for Novel Coronavirus
Updated on

McKesson Corp. will help distribute a vaccine for the novel coronavirus in the U.S., President Donald Trump said on Friday, as part of the government’s efforts to speed an inoculation to the American public.

The company will be a central distributor of both vaccines and related supplies needed to administer them, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement. The government is exercising an option in an existing contract with McKesson.
