WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds more U.S. hospitals are gearing up to vaccinate their workers as federal health officials posted a positive review of a second COVID-19 shot.
About 400 hospitals and other health care facilities will get their first shipments of the Pfizer vaccine on Tuesday.
The expansion comes one day after the nation’s death toll surpassed a staggering 300,000.
State officials are rationing the first shots to health workers and nursing home residents.
The Food and Drug Administration said that a second potential COVID-19 vaccine, developed by Moderna, appears safe and highly effective.
