President Donald Trump mentioned the US will begin administering the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine “in less than 24 hours,” after the Food and Drug Adminstration granted it an emergency use authorisation late on Friday.

“The first vaccine will be administered in less than 24 hours,” Trump mentioned in a televised tackle launched on (*24*).

“Through our partnership with FedEx and UPS, we have already begun shipping the vaccine to every state and zip code in the country,” he mentioned, including that governors would determine who would obtain the photographs first in their states.

“We want our senior citizens, health care workers and first responders to be first in line,” mentioned Trump. “This will quickly and dramatically reduce deaths and hospitalizations.”
