Health Department and Pentagon officials hold a joint briefing on the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed Covid-19 vaccination program on Wednesday as Americans begin to receive Pfizer’s shots.
The briefing takes place the day before the FDA Advisory Committee on Vaccines and Related Biological Products votes on whether to recommend Moderna’s emergency vaccine. A positive vote from the committee will likely pave the way for Moderna’s vaccine to be the second approved for use in the United States after Pfizer.
US officials have announced that they will be distributing about 40 million doses of vaccine by the end of this year, enough to vaccinate about 20 million people, since the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines take two weeks two shots apart.
