In America, a nurse named Sandra Lindsay was given the first vaccine from Corona at Long Iceland Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York.

Vaccination has started in America today. President Donald Trump reported this on social media. He wrote that the first vaccine has been installed in America. Congratulations to America! Congratulations to the whole world! At the same time, black nurse Sandra Lindsay was the first Corona vaccine in the country. Here in the first phase, this vaccine is to be given to health care workers. Earlier, preparations for vaccination continued throughout the day. Vaccines have been delivered at 145 places in many states of the country.

Staff and officers doing the necessary work of the White House will be delayed for the time being. Earlier it was reported that they would be vaccinated in 10 days. However, Trump wrote on social media shortly after that – the White House staff would be vaccinated later under the vaccination program. They can be vaccinated soon if necessary.

According to US media, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will also have vaccine offers. However, it is not yet clear whether Trump will get the vaccine immediately, as he has been infected once before. There are also plans to vaccinate President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris.

Multiple stages vaccination

Vaccination will take place in several stages in the US. In the first phase, frontline health workers and elderly people living in care homes will be vaccinated. General Gustave Perna is responsible for the distribution of the Corona vaccine. According to Perna, by the end of this week, around 3 million doses of the vaccine will reach all states. Vaccine doses are being delivered through trucks and ships. Last week, the government has approved emergency use of Pfizer and BioNotech. The country’s Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have described it as safe.

Program started with vaccination of five people

The Department of Health and Human Service started the vaccination program by applying the vaccine to five people. It is named Kick Off Event. These five people were vaccinated at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington DC. These are all frontline health workers. Subsequently, senior officers and doctors of the Health Department were vaccinated. The introduction of the vaccine to ordinary Americans will begin only after this week.

America arranges vaccine for half the population

America has ordered 100 million extra doses of Moderna’s vaccine. Earlier in July, the US had bought one million doses from Moderna. He has set a target to buy a total of 300 million extra doses. Every patient needs two doses. In this context, the vaccine will be given to 150 million people. The population of America is about 33 crore. This means that he has arranged for a vaccine for half the population.
