Donald Trump rejects early Kovid-19 vaccination for WH employees

Washington: US President Donald Trump has said that White House staff in the country should not be the first, currently affected by the epidemic, to receive coronavirus vaccination.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, the president said: “People working in the White House should receive the vaccine after some time in the program, unless particularly necessary. I have asked that this adjustment be made.
“I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing it at the appropriate time.”
In a statement to The Hill News website sent earlier on Sunday, National Security Council spokesman John Ulliott said: “Senior officials from all three branches of government will receive vaccination for continuation of government protocols established in executive policy.
“The American people must be confident that they are receiving safe and effective vaccines on the advice of public health professionals and national security leadership alike to senior US government officials.”
Trump’s remarks come a day before the first shipment of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine that will begin arriving in US states from Monday.
On December 12, Operation War Speed’s chief operating officer Gustave Perna said shipping companies UPS and FedEx would distribute the vaccine approximately, Xinhua reported.
On 11 December, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in partnership with the German company BioNotech, issued authorization for the emergency use of US drug manufacturer Pfizer’s Kovid-19 vaccine, the first vaccine against the disease in the country.
The Emergency Use Authority allows vaccines to be distributed in the country.
The FDA stated that the totality of the available data provides clear evidence that the Pfizer-BioNotech vaccine may be effective in preventing the virus.
America is currently the world’s largest in terms of coronovirus cases and deaths.
Johns Hopkins University revealed in its latest update on Monday that the country’s total caseload and death figures were 16,246,771 and 299,163 respectively.
