Iceland has received its first shipment of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed to CNN on Monday.
According to the spokesperson, an aircraft carrying Iceland’s first shipment of the vaccine landed at Keflavík International Airport Monday morning. It arrived from Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
The shipment included 10,000 doses of the vaccine, which are expected to be rolled out from Tuesday.
Earlier on Monday, Pfizer told CNN that it had had to reschedule a limited number of deliveries of the vaccine due to "minor logistical issues," with some countries in Europe now expected to receive their deliveries on Tuesday, rather than Monday.
