President-elect Joe Biden wants to release more COVID-19 vaccine doses immediately to administer as many shots as possible. This would be a departure from the Operation Warp Speed plan to hold back enough to make sure everyone who gets a first vaccination gets a second dose in the FDA's recommended time frame. A transition spokesperson said Biden wants to accelerate distribution of the vaccine, but some experts say sending more doses all at once would not solve the problems that have led to a delay between when doses are shipped and when people receive them.

The tweet garnered instead blowback and calls for Twitter to remove it, given the Chinese government's oppressive campaign against Uighurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities.

A new study offers some reassurance that Pfizer and BionTech's COVID-19 vaccine is likely to protect patients against two new variants of the COVID-19 virus: one now circulating rapidly in U.K. and the other South Africa. Since the emergence of these new variants, scientists have expressed confidence that currently authorized vaccines would work against them -- but cautioned that more studies were needed to be sure. Now, in a study that has not yet been peer reviewed, researchers from Pfizer and the University of Texas Medical Branch have found that the vaccine seems to work against one of the mutations that makes the U.K. and South African variants distinct.
