Update: Biden postpones trip to visit Michigan Pfizer facility due to weather

A statement from the White House on Friday says Biden will visit with Pfizer workers who are producing the COVID-19 vaccine.

Pfizer said it takes about 110 days to produce a batch of the COVID-19 vaccine. Earlier this month, the company said it is launching “Project Light Speed” as it expects to make production more efficient. Pfizer expects to make a batch of the vaccine in about 60 days, meaning more doses are on the way.
