The departments of Health and Human Services and Defense are holding a joint briefing Wednesday on the Trump administration’s coronavirus vaccine program Operation Warp Speed as states prepare to distribute doses.
The Pfizer vaccine rollout continues for the second day in the U.K., but a health regulator has warned that people with a history of severe allergic reactions should skip the shot for now. Members of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are set to meet and discuss the drug on Thursday. Briefing documents circulated by FDA staff on Tuesday ahead of the meeting confirmed the safety and efficacy of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and said the drug offers some protection after the first dose.
