The United States used emergency approval of the corona vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech. This allowed them to start vaccinating the population on December 14. President Donald Trump then announced that 20 million Americans would be vaccinated in 2020. Ultimately it was about 4.2 million.
On December 19, the United States used an emergency clearance again. This time it was about Moderna’s vaccine. As a result, the Americans are now being vaccinated against the corona virus with two different vaccines.
