This provided an update of trends and vaccination status and shipments due in coming weeks.
Notable, some 143,000 Pfizer doses are due this week and will be used for those due their 2nd doses.
Other dose types and more Pfizer doses (prioritized for school-age/12-18 children) are also due in coming weeks.
The vaccination accessibility opportunities are widening in terms of locations and providers (eg private facilities).
Digital vaccination cards and validation of data are in the works (in collaboration with an Indian company) as we move into an electronic environment.
