How long would it be before a vaccine can be distributed to the public?

I've seem rumours of a vaccination floating around. How long would it realistically be before a vaccine can be distributed to the public?

Hi @cyeap ! Thank you for your question. 

Realistically speaking it would take at least 6 months (on average), up to 2 years, for a drug to pass phase II clinical trials (which is where  safety is determined). As such even if a vaccine was being developed it would not be distributed any time soon unfortunately.
