As a possible vaccine from Pfizer comes online to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 the challenges of delivering the vaccine are coming into focus. Pfizer’s vaccine will have to be stored and delivered in extremely cold conditions. The federal government is largely handing off the distribution efforts to the states.
Governor JB Pritzker says knowing those challenges ahead for delivery only makes it more critical to get it right.
The state of Illinois has a preliminary distribution plan for a COVID-19 vaccine.
