“Operation Warp Speed, for which I give a great deal of credit to [former HHS Secretary Alex Azar], was a[n] effort that many of us were not initially convinced was going to be necessary. And it was thought about as a Manhattan Project,” Collins said, comparing the vaccine effort to the development of nuclear weapons.

Collins revealed that vaccines usually take about five years to develop. He stated that they “got done in 11 months from when we first knew about this virus is at least five years faster than it’s ever been before.”

Collins’ comments came after Joe Biden alleged that no COVID vaccine was available when he became the sitting president.

Biden said on CNN, “It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office, but a vaccinator. How do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?”

Before President Trump moved out of the White House, Biden already received the vaccine.
