Panel Recommends First Recipients of Future Vaccine

Serving low-income minorities to follow health care personnel and first responders.

An advisory panel created to aid President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed has recommended that coronavirus vaccine doses initially be given to health care workers and first responders. Although Operation Warp Speed is slated to purchase 300 million vaccine doses for the American people, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will be in charge of the vaccine distribution.

For a variety of reasons, the COVID-19 virus has affected minority communities at a higher rate than other demographics. As vaccine planning and development ramp up, several U.S. states and cities have requested extra measures to get vaccine doses to Hispanic, Native American, and black communities hit hardest by the coronavirus.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed would be successful.
  • For the scientists of the United States as they search for a cure to COVID-19.
  • That the CDC would have wisdom as they decide who will receive the vaccine and when.
