How the First COVID-19 Vaccinations Rolled Out at Hospitals Across the U.S.

At University of California Irvine, doctors are watching the first vaccinations with a bit of envy. Their first shipment of 3,000 doses should arrive on Wednesday, and they are ready to start working through their list of priority health care workers from among the 15,000 on staff. “We are planning on administering all 3,000 doses within the first couple of days,” says Dr. Nasim Afsar, chief operating officer at UC Irvine.
