    PFIZER COVID VACCINE DISTRIBUTED

    Beating even the most optimistic forecasts, The United States, United Kingdom & Canada all have begun distributing the vaccine created by Pfizer & BioNTech and approved on an emergency basis by the FDA.  This, despite the logistic challenges of shipping and storing the vaccine which must be kept at 70 degrees or below, Celsius or 90 degrees  below, Fahrenheit.

    Breaking the cold chain could render the vaccine useless.  This will be problematic in countries with intense heat and spotty electricity.

    The vaccine must be taken in 2 doses, 3 weeks apart.  Immunity kicks in with 3-4 weeks after the second dose.

    After receiving the first dose of the vaccine recipients will be given a card to carry in their wallet telling them when the next dose is due.  Vaccinations will also be reported to state immunization registries so there will be an independent record of when the first dose was received.  Many clinics also will be sending text messages telling them when and where the second dose will be administered.
