Four States will be used as case study for the successful distribution and delivery of Pfizer’s Coronavirus Vaccine.

Pfizer has launched a trial delivery program in four United States’ states to map out a pattern for distributing its vaccines throughout the United States.

The United States had signed a $1.95 billion deal to delivery 100 million doses of its vaccines after gaining a permit to use its vaccines.

Last Week the company and its partner BioNTech had announced that their COVID-19 vaccine was more than 90% effective after an analysis of initial trials results.

In a statement, the Company said if this delivery trial was sucessful in the four states it would serve as a model for distribution of the vaccine in other states.

The trial would also show that the Company could tackle the cold-storage challenges faced in shipping vaccines that must be stored at -70 degrees Celsius.

“We are hopeful that results from this vaccine delivery pilot will serve as the model for other U.S. states and international governments, as they prepare to implement effective COVID-19 vaccine programs,” a statement read.

The demographics, diversity of population, geographical diversity and immunization infrastructure of Rhode ISland, Texas, New Mexico, and Tennessee would be put into consideration for the distribution of the vaccines.

Pfizer plans to round up its late stage large scale trials by the close of November and use the safety data to acquire the Emergency Use Authorization from necessary authorities.
