  Late last week, the U.S government and the markets had anticipated the EUA approval. 20 million doses are due for the U.S before the end of the year.   As new COVID-19 cases continue to surge across the U.S, Operation Warp Speed will need to prove decisive in the fight against the pandemic.   [fx-article-ad]Whats next?   Following the FDA approval, Moderna Inc. expects to deliver doses of the vaccine to healthcare centers from Monday.   A reported 3,700 sites are to begin vaccinations at the start of the week. The number of doses is expected to be far higher than those that Pfizer Inc. is in the process of circulating.   This is assuming that there are no supply chain issues that could undermine the production of 20 million doses by year-end. Over the weekend, there were reports that certain states had seen their allocation of the Moderna Inc. vaccine cut significantly…   Over the weekend, Moderna Inc. began to deliver vaccine doses under guard and in secure refrigeration.   Later today, the CDC is also set to decide on the next priority group beyond phase 1c to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.   The CDCs phase sequence for the highest priority recipients of COVID-19 vaccines was as follows:   Phase 1a: Healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents.   Phase 1b: Essential workers including the education sector, food & agriculture, utilities, police, firefighters, correction officers, transportation.   Phase 1c: Adults with high-risk medical conditions and adults of the age of 65 years plus.   In terms of numbers, healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents total around 24 million. This would require a total of 48 million doses for phase 1a alone.   This means that, while the CDC will decide on priority groups beyond phase 1c, new groups will need to wait well into the New Year based on vaccine delivery numbers.
