First vaccines due in Madeira December 31.

TAP plane that will most likely be making the delivery of the vaccine

JM reports that 9,750 doses of the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine will arrive in Madeira at dawn on the last day of the year, contrary to the best forecasts of the State and the Regional Government, which had anticipated the delivery deadline for vaccines reserved for the Region at this stage today, when vaccination started in mainland Portugal.

Although the Regional Government has made available means to speed up the delivery process of the first batches of the vaccine, JM understands that the German biotechnology company BioNtech prefers to control all aspects related to the transport procedure.
