MONDAY, Dec. 14, 2020 (HealthDay News) — White House officials will no longer be among the first Americans to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
It had been announced by the White House that senior U.S. officials, including some aides who work in close proximity to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, would be offered vaccination as soon as this week, the Associated Press reported.
But just hours later, Trump reversed that directive.
“People working in the White House should receive the vaccine somewhat later in the program, unless specifically necessary,” Trump tweeted. “I have asked that this adjustment be made. I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time.”
