Who’s First for the COVID-19 Vaccine?

Many have been questioning who will be first in line for the COVID-19 vaccine. Well, some recent information coming out of Science News has provided us with an update.

Healthcare workers and long-term care residents have been recommended for the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine. The two vaccine candidates, Pfizer and Moderna, will be ready for emergency use, by way of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), on December 10 and 17th. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses several weeks apart, and roughly 40 million doses will be available by the end of the year.

In the United States, there are 21 million health care workers and 3 million adults living in long-term care facilities. So I will keep you all updated on any new findings.
