First Shipments Of Pfizer Coronavirus Vaccine To Be Delivered By 15th December

According to reports, the first coronavirus vaccine named Pfizer will be delivered by December 15th to the selected destinations. This was according to an Operation Wrap Speed document obtained by reporters on Tuesday.

The same document also provided information that the first shipment of the Moderna vaccine will be delivered by December 22. However, these vaccines are to be distributed across the United States before they are shipped overseas.

The mentioned distribution dates are contingent upon a decision by the US Food and Drug Administration to authorize each vaccine for emergency use. Pfizer submitted an application to the FDA on November 20 and Moderna submitted it on November 30.

A panel of independent experts and the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products committee will meet on 10th December to review Pfizer’s data. Thereafter, they will make a recommendation to the FDA about whether to authorize the vaccine.

There will be a four-day window between December 11 and 14 for review by the FDA and CDC’S committee on immunization practices. This will also make recommendations about who will receive the vaccine first.

The document portrayed a vaccine manufacturing forecast estimating 22.5 million doses of Pfizer vaccine. It also indicated that 18 million doses of the Moderna vaccine will be produced, both happening in December.

A list of ‘’essential tasks’’ was included for governors to complete by December 4. The tasks include pre-ordering Pfizer vaccines, enrolling providers in the Covid-19 vaccine program, and completing micro plans for distribution and administration.
