The Pfizer vaccine storage and distribution challenge make it significantly

less valuable than the Moderna version.

FWIW, Atlanta area hospitals have just bought refrigeration equipment to store 1 million doses. But they have to get those doses into people without having them spoil. From what I understand, the Pfizer vaccine needs to go straight from the freezer into a body, where the Moderna vaccine can go from refrigerator to room temp for up to 12 hours before needing to be injected.
