Bloomberg (12/9, Tozzi, LaVito) reports, “Less than half of the available 6.4 million doses of Pfizer Inc.’s Covid-19 vaccine will be initially sent out to states, and 500,000 will be held separately in reserve by the government, according to a top official at Operation Warp Speed.” Gustave Perna “said on a call with reporters Wednesday that the U.S. plans to distribute 2.9 million doses in the first round of shipments,” while “the rest will be held back to be distributed to states and other jurisdictions when the first people vaccinated are due for their second dose 21 days later.”
