December 12, 2020

The Food and Drug Administration late Friday OK’d the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use and initial shipments of nearly 3 million doses were loaded on trucks this weekend, set for distribution nationwide as soon as Monday.

“Make no mistake — distribution has begun,” said Operation Warp Speed Chief Operating Officer General Gus Perna, adding that boxes were being packed and loaded with vaccines Saturday, with emphasis on quality control.
