MIAMI (WFLA) — Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to visit Florida next week and discuss the progress being made on a coronavirus vaccine.

The vice president’s office announced the visit on Thursday. Pence is scheduled to fly to Miami on Monday to “mark the beginning of Phase III trials for a coronavirus vaccine,” the notice says.
