When U.S. Sen. John Boozman stood in front of officials and frontline workers employed at White River Health System, his message was not only of praise for the efforts that have been put forth, but also gave a glimpse of what is to come.

Boozman said there is no timetable on a vaccine to combat COVID-19.
