Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Pfizer workers cheer as first COVID-19 vaccines are shipped from US facility” – below is their description.
Workers at a Pfizer Inc factory in Michigan dispatched the first shipments of its COVID-19 vaccine Sunday morning, launching the largest and most complex vaccine-distribution project ever in the United States.
A network television video feed from the facility in Kalamazoo showed masked workers removing cartons containing vaccine vials from a freezer and placing them in large, blue coolers before they were boxed and labelled.
Workers clapped and whistled as the first boxes were moved toward waiting trucks. The long-awaited moment comes as infections and deaths from COVID-19 are surging in the United States. It will take months before most U.S. residents can get a COVID-19 vaccine.
U.S. regulators late on Friday authorized the vaccine from Pfizer and partner BioNTech for use. Federal officials say the first shipments of Pfizer’s vaccine will be staggered, arriving in 145 distribution centres Monday, with an additional 425 sites getting shipments Tuesday and the remaining 66 on Wednesday.
