By David Vergun, DOD News // December 25, 2020
By the end of the year, 20 million doses of vaccine will have been delivered
(Defense.gov) — This week, 7.9 million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine were allocated for delivery. More than 7.8 million will have been delivered, said Army Gen. Gustave F. Perna.
Next week’s allocation is 4.67 million doses, with 2.67 million coming from Pfizer-BioNTech and 2 million from Moderna, he said.
By the end of the year, 20 million doses of vaccine will have been delivered, Perna said.
Every day, OWS is compiling lessons learned, he said, to become even more efficient as time goes by at quality control and volume and scale of packing and delivery, he noted.
“We’re learning. We’re getting better, and every day we’re getting stronger,” he said. “We’re in a steady drumbeat of continuous vaccine delivery. We want it to be even smoother every single day.
“We are working with the states in collaboration to make sure that we have a continuous contact with everybody who’s receiving the vaccine so that we can make sure that they know when the package is arriving or if the package will be late,” Perna said.
“We’re confirming and always getting better at the development of addresses to ensure that we know the right places to go to, and there’s no delay there.
