The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center expects the first doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine to be delivered between 9:15 and 9:30 a.m. ET this morning, hospital spokesperson Alexis Shaw told CNN in a statement.
Once the vaccine arrives, Shaw said, they plan to begin vaccinating about 20 to 30 of the hospital’s “prioritized, high risk frontline healthcare workers” within 1-1.5 hours.
The University of Michigan Hospital is expecting to receive its first doses of the shot at 8:45 a.m., a hospital spokesperson told CNN.
Distribution begins: Thousands of vials of the vaccine were collected for distribution across the country Sunday after it passed its last regulatory hurdle. Los Angeles International Airport tweeted just before 10 p.m. local time that it had received its first batch.
Gustave Perna, chief operating officer of Operation Warp Speed, said on Saturday that 145 administration sites across all the states were expected to receive the vaccine on Monday, another 425 sites on Tuesday, and the final 66 sites on Wednesday.
