Alberta's priority healthcare workers will be first to receive vaccine

The Department of Health said it expects to get 62,400 doses of the Pfizer vaccine this week, which will be distributed to 17 sites in 13 counties.

On Tuesday, a health worker in Alaska suffered a severe allergic reaction after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

"Preparations are in high gear to vaccinate our frontline healthcare workers with that COVID-19 vaccine", he said.

The state's chief medical officer, Dr. Anne Zink, said Alaska doesn't plan to change its vaccine rollout. Both vaccines require two doses to be administered. She told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch it felt "just like my flu shot".

"As there are no guarantees that all the vaccines will successfully complete clinical trials, or be approved for use, this approach ensures we are able to access safe and effective vaccines at the earliest possible time", Woods said. DPH will also receive an additional 3,900 doses of the Pfizer vaccine next week; an additional 6,825 doses of Pfizer will be reserved as part of the federal pharmacy program for vaccinating long-term care residents and staff in the coming weeks, bringing the total of Delaware's Pfizer allotment for the week of December 21, 2020, to 10,725 doses.

Guaita was called into action in the dying embers however, making huge saves from a Kane header and Eric Dier free-kick. The visitors were almost punished just before half-time when Eberechi Eze's curling effort came back off the post.

Pfizer and Moderna need cooler temperatures for their vaccines because of the instability of the mRNA.

Five health care workers, including emergency room nurses, rolled up their sleeves and received shots at Loretto Hospital, which is located in Chicago's Austin neighborhood, a largely Black enclave that has been hit hard by COVID-19. Employees from Walgreens and CVS pharmacies will be largely responsible for administering the vaccines at long-term care facilities under a federal agreement. More than half the population say they will not, or probably not, get inoculated, polls show. "It's recommended that folks that work in the same critical areas are not vaccinated on the same day or successive day", said Young, who explained staggering distribution over several days is important as some side effects are common.

Questions remain about how long immunity lasts, whether a vaccinated person can still transmit the disease, and what its impact will be on rising deaths and hospitalizations.

The policy, announced the same week that the first Americans received COVID-19 vaccinations as part of a mass immunization campaign, will also apply to false claims that the pandemic is not real or serious and vaccinations are unnecessary.
