BLOOMBERG reports:

(We’re following the nine most promising shots around the world. Updated: 18 December 2020, 11:00 CET)

The first Covid-19 shots have been given to more than 1.1 million people in four countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg. It’s the start of the biggest vaccination campaign in history and one of the largest logistical challenges ever undertaken.

Vaccinations in the U.S. began this week with health-care workers, and 24 states reported the first 49,567 doses administered. Those numbers are expected to surge in coming days as more states work through their early allocations of shots and begin to report their numbers.

These are the first of an initial distribution of 5.9 million doses of Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE’s vaccine.

About half of those doses are being distributed this week, according to a state-by-state breakdown of shipments released by the U.S. government. The other half are being held in reserve until three weeks from now, when those who got the vaccine will get the second shot of the two-dose inoculation.
