On Friday, November 27, United Airlines transported the Pfizer vaccine against coronavirus disease BNT162b2 from Brussels to Chicago's O'Hara International Airport.
This was reported by CNBC.
It is worth noting that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved the vaccine. The company plans to ship batches of its vaccine to vaccination points from its sites in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Puurs, Belgium.
Pfizer and BioNTech have also applied for registration of their co-developed coronavirus vaccine in the European Union.
Hungary became the first EU country to express interest in receiving the Russian Sputnik V vaccine. The effectiveness of the Russian vaccine, which is planned to be supplied to Hungary, is over 92%.
It was noted that the country itself would be responsible for the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.
