Canada has approved Pfizer’s vaccine and could begin immunizations as soon as next week.
In the U.S., a Food and Drug Administration vaccine advisory committee is holding an all-day meeting today to review the Pfizer vaccine. Depending on how the committee votes, the first U.S. doses could be delivered on Friday.
Here in New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo promised state officials will not share the immigration status of vaccine recipients with the federal government. Cuomo said, “If undocumented people don’t get vaccinated, it compromises their health and it compromises the whole program.”
