The federal government said Wednesday that 5.9 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine – enough to inoculate more than 2.9 million people – had been set aside primarily for states and territories to begin protecting medical workers and residents of retirement homes against the coronavirus.

Delivery vans and UPS planes crossed the country this week, carrying the first precious doses. The federal government did not provide data on how many doses of Pfizer arrived at the planned locations or on the number of people who received injections. The development, study and approval of the vaccine took place in record time, but it was also only the first step in a long process to end the pandemic. The vaccination campaign is the most ambitious in American history, and producing enough doses, sending them to the right places and convincing enough people to take them promises to be a long and complicated mobilization. This first wave of shipments will immunize less than 1 percent of the nation’s population and cover only a fraction of the 21 million healthcare workers and three million residents of long-term care facilities who are the first.

“I think the first wave is going to be the easiest – sending it to hospitals,” said Claire Hannan, executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers, a nonprofit that represents public health officials who handle vaccines. “It’s going to get more difficult. Either you’re going to get a lot more supply and you have to figure it out, or you’re not going to have enough supply and you have to figure it out. ”

Regulators could approve a second vaccine, developed by Moderna, in the coming days.

The Pfizer vaccine requires a two-dose regimen, about three weeks apart. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, states and a group of federal agencies have received more than 2.9 million first doses, followed closely by an additional 2.9 million. Each state received an amount of vaccine roughly proportional to its population. Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia have been assigned doses separately from their states. And some states, like Alaska, North Dakota, and Utah, will receive a supplement for tribal governments that have chosen to receive their vaccines through the state, rather than through the Health Department.

The vaccine distribution work comes at one of the darkest times of the pandemic. More than 300,000 people in the United States have died after contracting the virus. Nearly 2,500 deaths are announced each day, most from all points of the pandemic. And reports of new cases remain near record levels, with more than 200,000 on average every day.

Some states have started publishing data on the doses of Pfizer they have received and administered, but there is not yet a consistent method by which they can publicly report the number of doses they have received and administered.

The figures above reflect a nationwide first-dose rollout that began earlier this week – the first step towards protecting Americans from a virus that continues to devastate the country.
