Pfizer and Moderna have stated that they can produce 7 million doses of vaccine collectively per month through the rest of this year. Beginning with year 2022 they will produce 5 - 10 million doses a week. CDC has said they expect 40 million doses by end of this year.

China has reportedly developed their own version of vaccine for the COVID-19 virus.
