I believe DutchDushi said that it was coming from the Netherlands and that it would be on the island very soon. It is a vaccine done in conjunction with Pfizer and another company in the Netherlands I believe.

The most recent announcement was that some vaccine would be arriving in January.

I think we are in what is called "Group 1c"...not first-line responders, not in an assisted-living place, but over a certain age.

Dare I think things might be better when we would first consider travel to AUA in September, 2021?

Just yesterday the European Medicine Authority approved the Pfizer vaccine. We will recieve the first vaccines later this week. After that, some of it will be shipped to Aruba. In the Netherlands, we will start administering the Pfizer vaccine to health care workers as of 1/8.
