Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Messes Up Pfizer Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout

The first 2.9 million doses of Pfizer’s new two-dose coronavirus vaccine shipped from the company’s factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on Sunday, kicking off a large-scale national project health officials hope the pandemic will end sometime in late 2021.

But some states are better placed to get rid of the coronavirus than others.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention distribute the doses weekly as they leave Pfizer’s factory and ship them via UPS and Fedex. Then it’s up to the authorities in every state and territory of the US to decide exactly where those doses go – and who will be first in line to get them.

It’s a messy process. States are essentially deciding who gets protection first – and who should remain at risk of contracting and possibly dying from COVID-19.
