Americans will start receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine on Monday, the official in charge of the distribution operation said today.
“We are operationally 100% confident that we will get the vaccines to the American people [starting Monday morning],” he said.
“Expect 145 sites across all the states to receive vaccine on Monday, another 425 sites on Tuesday. And the final 66 sites on Wednesday, which will complete the initial delivery of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine,” he said.
The first wave will vaccinate about three million people.
The US became the sixth country to green light the Pfizer vaccine after Britain, Bahrain, Canada, Saudi Arabia and Mexico.
