STATE OFFICIALS FRUSTRATED OVER GOVERNMENT ROLLOUT OF VACCINES: Defense Department officials and members of Operation Warp Speed hold a briefing on the U.S. government’s efforts to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine. On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration authorized drug manufacturer Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine for emergency use, making it the second vaccine available in the United States. Like the one from Pfizer and BioNTech, Moderna’s vaccine requires two shots spaced weeks apart, however shipment and delivery of the Moderna vaccine will be managed by the federal government under Operation Warp Speed. Some state leaders have voiced confusion and frustration after learning their shipments of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines would be cut, alleging issues with the pharmaceutical company’s production and distribution. Pfizer has since said the problem is not on their end, but the federal government’s, saying in a statement that they ‘have millions more doses sitting in our warehouse but, as of now, we have not received any shipment instructions for additional doses.’
