Florida Governor Ron DeSantis messes up Pfizer coronavirus vaccine rollout

The 2.9 million first batches of 2.9 million doses of Pfizer’s new two-dose vaccine shipped from the company’s Kalamazoo, Mich. Plant on Sunday kick off a massive national project that officials health officials hope to end the pandemic by the end of 2021.

But some states are better prepared to turn off the than others.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention divides the doses on a weekly basis as they leave the Pfizer plant and ship them via UPS and Fedex. Then it’s up to the authorities in each state and territory of the United States to decide exactly where those doses go – and who gets them first.

It’s a complicated process. States essentially decide who gets protection first – and who should continue to run the risk of catching COVID-19, and potentially dying from it.
