Montana Could Receive First Vaccination Shipment by Mid-December

Gov. Steve Bullock on Wednesday announced that Montana could receive the first shipment of vaccinations for COVID-19 as soon as Dec. 15. The state is expected to receive an initial shipment of around 9,750 doses of the vaccination developed by the drug company Pfizer, with several thousand more doses in subsequent weeks. If approved, another drugmaker, Moderna, is expected to begin shipping vaccinations a week later.

“The vaccination plan really is a work in progress, a work in motion, as we move forward,” Bullock said during the press call, emphasizing that new information was coming together every day.
