Pence to Visit Tennessee, Talk Coronavirus Vaccines

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to visit Memphis on Thursday to discuss the development and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines, according to his office.

Memphis is home to shipping giant FedEx, which is helping in the national vaccine distribution. Pence will participate in an afternoon discussion, which will include Republican Gov. Bill Lee.

Tennessee health officials say the state is expecting to receive 56,550 doses of the potential Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in its first allocation in mid-December.

Tennessee has nearly 878 new cases per 100,000 people in the past two weeks. That ranks 24th in the country for new cases per capita, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The state has confirmed 4,638 coronavirus-related deaths.
