Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Arrives at Chicago O’Hare Airport: Source – NBC Chicago


The very first batch of COVID-19 vaccine arrived at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport from Brussels, Belgium on a United Airlines flight on a United Airlines flight, NBC News reported.

As we reported on Saturday, a source said, “United Airlines has already flown its first chartered cargo flight to the United States from Brussels to Chicago with the vaccine on board.”

However, it was not clear how many portions were on board or exactly when the cargo arrived at O’Hare.

United Airlines did not confirm the details of the flight, but said in a statement: “United Cargo set up a COVID contingency team earlier this summer to ensure we had the right people, products, services and partnerships to distribute vaccines globally. “

Pfizer continues to seek emergency approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The pharmaceutical giant completed the third phase experiment and found that the vaccine was 95%.

An extraordinary meeting is planned for next week. CDC advisers are scheduled to meet on Tuesday to vote on who will receive the vaccine first.
