CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming health officials say the state could receive 7,000 fewer coronavirus vaccine doses this month than initially estimated due to a production discrepancy.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Wednesday that a county-by-county distribution schedule published by the Wyoming Department of Health estimates the state will receive 20,325 vaccine doses by the end of December — a decline of 7,000 from the previous estimate.

Department spokeswoman Kim Deti said the Pfizer shipments decreased for the last two weeks of December due to differences between estimated production and actual production.

The separate Moderna vaccine was approved late last week and 10,000 doses are expected to be delivered this week to Wyoming.
