California and several other states will be getting a smaller shipment of COVID-19 vaccines for the next round.
Governor Gavin Newsom initially said that he had anticipated an allocation of 393,000 vaccines. A spokesperson for Newsom's office says the state is now expected to receive about 233,000 doses. White House officials responded to the smaller shipment saying "there's a difference between doses that are manufactured and doses that have completed quality control and are deemed releasable."
Pfizer released a statement yesterday, claiming the delays are not on their end. They said they successfully shipped all 2.9 million doses ordered by the U.S. government.
