FDA approves Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for emergency distribution in the US

The US Food and Drug Administration approved an emergency use authorization for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Friday, clearing the way for the distribution of the drug across the country.

According to The NYT reports, an initial shipment of about 2.9 million doses of the vaccine will be sent around the US over the next week.

“About 3 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine are expected in the first shipments around the country, according to officials with Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration’s vaccine development program. A similar amount is to be held in reserve for those recipients’ second dose.” — AP

The FDA will recommend who receives the vaccine first and is expected to prioritize frontline health care workers and nursing home residents

Who will receive the vaccine first?
“A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee is poised to recommend who’s first in line. Expected to follow health workers and nursing homes are other essential workers, older adults and people at high risk because of other health problems. U.S. authorities don’t expect enough for the general population before spring, and that’s assuming there are no manufacturing glitches.” — AP
Elsewhere, South African Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, known for speaking his mind, has sent shockwaves through the entire country after a prayer in which he referenced wild conspiracy theories claiming that anti-Covid vaccinations are “evil” and “of the devil”.
