Following approval of the first Corona vaccine in the U.S., vaccination could begin there on Monday. Currently, existing doses of the approved vaccine from German pharmaceutical company Biontech and its U.S. partner Pfizer are being packaged, a White House official said today. Tomorrow, those doses would then be shipped to more than 600 initial deployment sites. “Starting Monday, the vaccine will be deployed,” Gustave Perna said.

Perna is in charge of logistics for “Operation Warp Speed,” the White House vaccination project. The CoV vaccine from Biontech and Pfizer had received emergency approval in the U.S. by the end of the week. It can now be used in people 16 and older.

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump had previously promised his countrymen that vaccination would begin this weekend. “The first vaccine will be administered in less than 24 hours,” Trump had said in a video published via Twitter. His Health Secretary Alex Azar, however, had spoken of “Monday or Tuesday.”
