As of Wednesday morning, only 1 million doses of the Pfizer-Bioentech vaccine had been delivered, about a third of the first shipment sent last week. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 9.5 million vaccines, including the modern version, have now been shipped to the United States.
The slow pace of vaccination is evident when 614,000 vaccines were delivered from the first week, although nearly 2.9 million were dispatched.
Some hospitals said they received only about 100 vaccines on the first day.
The number of cases in the United States has surpassed 18 million, with 323,000 deaths.

Two more vaccines could be allowed in Johnson & Johnson and Astrogeneka in February.
