US transports Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine
The US has begun delivering the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine “across all states” with the goal of inoculating greater than 100 million individuals by the top of March, officers say.
The first doses, packed in containers with dry ice to maintain them refrigerated, had been transported throughout the nation on vehicles and planes early on Sunday.
US Army Gen Gustave Perna, who’s overseeing distribution, stated the vaccine can be delivered to 145 places on Monday, and an additional 491 websites on Tuesday and Wednesday. The preliminary supply will cowl about three million individuals.
The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, which provides as much as 95% safety towards Covid-19, acquired emergency use authorisation from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Friday following intense strain from the Trump administration.
