A Pfizer executive announced that he expects his company to deliver 13 million coronavirus vaccine doses per week to the United States by mid-March, a significant increase in production that will push the nation closer to goal set by the Biden Administration, Reuters reports.
President Joe Biden set a goal of having 100 million people inoculated within his first 100 days in office. Currently, 46 million people have received at least one dose of one of the available vaccines; about 19 million have received both doses required by currently available vaccines.
Pfizer has already delivered 40 million doses around the US, and is on track to deliver 120 million doses by the end of March. Moderna, the manufacturer of the second approved vaccine, said it will deliver 100 million doses by the end of March, and it expects to have 300 million doses delivered to US outlets by the end of July.
