Up to 5,000 doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine could be on their way to Wyoming by the end of the week, Gov. Mark Gordon told legislators on Monday.
Gordon, speaking to members of the Joint Appropriations Committee, said if the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves an emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s vaccine during its meeting Thursday, the initial shipment of 5,000 doses could be on its way to Wyoming within 24 hours.
Gordon told lawmakers the first 5,000 doses would be designated for use by health care workers, according to an account of the meeting posted on the Facebook page of state Rep. Clark Stith, R-Rock Springs.
Gordon said another 15,000 doses could reach the state by the end of the year.
