A COVID-19 vaccine should be in Mississippi “by next week” according to a post by the state’s top health officer.

A vaccine will be available for healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 battle.

Dr. Tomas Dobbs tweeted that the state should have around 25,000 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine “by next week.”

Dobbs said the FDA is expected to meet Thursday to review the vaccine, and more data will be available after that.
