By Andrew Chan


The first few shots were given in the American vaccination campaign on Monday, giving hope to Americans, especially people of color and people living in poverty. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was administered in Queens, New York, marking the first known injection of the new vaccine since it was authorized by the F.D.A. during later times last week. Presidential Candidate Donald Trump tweeted: “First Vaccine Administered. Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!”


But, the joys of a new chapter in the battle against Coronavirus were soon shot down by the harsh reality of the world’s current state. The United States surpassed 300,000 virus-related deaths on Monday, reporting at least 1,670 new ones, along with at least 201,000 new cases Luckily, the vaccinations started after the F.D.A.’s emergency authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Friday during nighttime. On Sunday, cargo planes and trucks were packed with the first of about three million doses of the Coronavirus vaccine and had been transported across the country.
