(Reuters) – Pfizer Inc said on Saturday that the first COVID-19 vaccine supplies are being prepared to ship from the company’s Kalamazoo, Michigan site.

They will be distributed by the U.S. Department of Defense in partnership with agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to government-designated facilities across the country, Pfizer said after a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel recommended the nation’s first COVID-19 vaccine.
