First wave of deliveries will see 150 locations supplied with the vaccine

The first shipment of COVID-19 vaccine for use in the United States pulled out of a Portage, Mich., manufacturing plant Sunday morning, with the shots that are important to restricting the nation’s coronavirus outbreak destined to reach locations in all 50 states a day later.

The first wave of deliveries will see 150 locations supplied with the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine, and a further 450 sites will be supplied in the second shipment.

The vaccine is destined to reach Monday morning so that health workers can take the shot before administering it themselves.

Shipments of the Pfizer vaccine will set in motion the biggest vaccination effort in American history at a crucial point of the pandemic that has killed 1.6 million and sickened 71 million across the world.
