First Coronavirus Vaccines Arrive In Mass. | CommonHealth

The development comes days after the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) on December 11 approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use.

"We're celebrating Hanukkah, which is a time of miracles".

"We have done quite everything we thought we could do to make sure the residents will be safe", said Dupuis.

CHSLD Saint-Antoine and the Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre are the first locations in the province to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in Quebec. Close to 300 of the facility's 327 residents should be vaccinated over the course of a week, depending on their health, said Lucie Tremblay, director of nursing for the network that manages Maimonides.

"To think now we can just absorb in our country 3,000 deaths a day as though it were just business as usual, it just represents a moral failing", she said.

Ontario confirmed 1,940 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, including 45 in Ottawa, as well as 23 new COVID-related deaths.

Gen. Gustave Perna, one of the military leaders overseeing the distribution of hundreds of millions of COVID-19 shots across the country, compared Saturday's shipment of Pfizer's vaccine to "D-Day".

The FDA review "included input from independent scientific and public health experts and a thorough evaluation by the agency's career scientists to ensure this vaccine met FDA's rigorous, scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality needed to support emergency use authorization", said a statement from FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen M. Hahn. The average number of new daily cases over the last week was 210,764, another pandemic high, according to Johns Hopkins data. "No one knows right now".

"But the First Minister has inaccurately boasted that her government is performing better than the rest of the United Kingdom, when that's just not the case".

Northwell officials tell News 12 that the vaccine will go to employees in areas like the ER that have the most exposure to coronavirus patients, and those with underlying conditions.

He added: "Practically, we need to work with the fact that we have a supply which is the first phase supply and we need to prioritise those most at risk".

On 8 December 2020, the United Kingdom begun vaccinating its at-risk citizens with the COVID-19 vaccine made by Pfizer.

Bourla has not received the vaccine yet, he said.

"It's a time to remember: remember what this means, remember the losses that we had, remember that we want to protect every other person we can protect from getting this disease".
