President Donald Trump’s ‘Operation Warp Speed’ is coming to fruition with the announcement that several western states just approved use of the new vaccine.
According to Breitbart News, “a coalition of western states — California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada — approved the new coronavirus vaccine being shipped by by Pfizer and BioNTech on Sunday, allowing the first doses to be distributed across the region.”
The Los Angeles Times reported:
The group, representing California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, reviewed the vaccine separately from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which on Friday issued emergency use authorization. The group made its recommendation to the governors of the four states Sunday morning, officials said in a news release.
The move paved the way for vaccines to be distributed across California. Los Angeles International Airport’s Twitter account said Sunday night that the first batch had arrived in L.A., with more to follow this month and in January.
“With shipments of the vaccine soon on their way to California,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement, “we are working hand-in-hand with local public health officials to get the vaccine out to the first phase of recipients.”
