The Dow Jones Industrial Average appeared ready for a 100-point drop as the market opened today. Investors were grappling this morning with the same issues that yesterday dragged the Dow down–uncertainty around additional stimulus, and the mounting virus cases in this country.
On Thursday, the FDA is slated to discuss whether it will grant emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s vaccine, which is already being deployed in the U.K. Today the FDA said that the trial information did not give any cause for concern.
Meanwhile, the first woman in the world received the vaccine today. She is 90 years old.
And President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order today that would ensure the U.S. remains focused on inoculations in this country first.

Pfizer’s virus vaccine is officially being administered outside of clinical trials, as the U.K. begins its distribution to older adults (80 years and above), and those who work in healthcare.
Margaret Keenan is 90 years old, and a grandmother. She is also the first person to be inoculated against the virus beyond a research setting.
For now, inoculations are happening at 50 hospitals in the U.K., but the vaccine will ultimately be more widely available.
In the U.K., there are more than 1.7 million people who are infected with the virus, and there have been over 61,000 deaths.
“It’s just incredible actually,” said chief pharmacist of Croydon Health Services. “Obviously I can’t hold them in my hands because they are minus 70 degrees, but to know that they are here and we are amongst the first in the country to actually receive the vaccine and therefore the first in the world is just amazing. I am so proud.”
