Inside the race to make vials for the Coronavirus Vaccine in upstate New York


NBC’s Gary Grumbach gets an inside look at the operation going on inside a glass company in upstate New York, as employees work around the clock to ensure they are producing enough glass vials for the Coronavirus vaccine. Corning Inc. is one of two private companies selected by “Operation Warp Speed” to create the vials, which have distinct properties. It was allocated $204 million to increase production, in hopes of manufacturing 164 million vials a year.
