Watch Live: Officials update Americans on coronavirus vaccine distribution

WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) —  The U.S. Transportation Department said it has made preparations to enable the “immediate mass shipment” of COVID-19 vaccines and completed all necessary regulatory measures.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, Operation Warp Speed COO Gen. Gustave Perna and Chief Advisor Dr Moncef Slaoui were expected to hold a briefing at 12:15 p.m. EST Wednesday. NewsNation will livestream the event in the player above.

U.S. DOT said U.S. agencies have been coordinating with private sector companies that will carry vaccines from manufacturing facilities to distribution centers and inoculation points.

It added it has established “appropriate safety requirements for all potential hazards involved in shipping the vaccine, including standards for dry ice and lithium batteries used in cooling.”

The department is preparing to ensure deliveries of vaccine doses for about 40 million U.S. residents through January, or about 20 million a month, officials told Reuters.

Healthcare workers and others recommended for the first inoculations could start getting shots within 24 hours after the vaccine receives regulatory authorization, the chief adviser for the U.S. government’s Operation Warp Speed program said on Tuesday.

Pfizer Inc has applied for an emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its vaccine.

Officials ran a drill last month simulating shipments of vaccine to ensure that all regulatory approvals were in place to allow for immediate deliveries to begin in the coming weeks.

“The department has laid the groundwork for the safe transportation of the COVID-19 vaccine and is proud to support this historic endeavor,” Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in a statement.

The department has issued emergency regulatory relief for flight crews to support uninterrupted flight operations and respond to increased cargo demand.

Last week, Reuters reported United Airlines had begun moving shipments of the Pfizer vaccine, on charter flights to ensure it can be quickly distributed once it is approved, according to a person familiar with the matter.

American Airlines in November began trial flights from Miami to South America to prepare for its role in transporting COVID-19 vaccines, the carrier said Monday. 

Skidmore Cares 2020 donation drive provides community support during challenging times

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — For the 15th consecutive year, the Skidmore College community came together to assist local residents and families through the Skidmore Cares community service program. This year, Skidmore faculty, staff and students donated close to $800 to community agencies, nearly 3,000 food items, and more than 3,400 school supplies and personal care items — including 2,130 face masks — for Saratoga County community organizations.

To help ensure the health and safety of all involved, the annual campus-wide event was modified this year, encouraging individuals to drop off donations at outdoor locations on campus in early November.  

Skidmore employees organized and delivered the contributions to 10 local community service agencies: Shelters of Saratoga, Franklin Community Center, Mary’s Haven, Saratoga Economic Opportunity Council, Wellspring, Corinth Central School District, Saratoga Springs City School District PATHS, the Latino Advocacy Program, the Salvation Army and Saratoga Center for the Family. 

Kari Cushing, executive director of Franklin Community Center, stressed that there is real need in the Saratoga Springs area.

“COVID-19 has caused a big influx in the number of people who are relying on our services,” Cushing said. “As of September, we have had 444 new families visit our food pantry. These are families who have never before had to use our services and are now relying on our food pantry to keep their families fed. In addition, we are serving much larger families than we historically have due to adult children moving back in with their parents.”

Founded in 2006, Skidmore Cares has now raised more than $122,000 for community causes and distributed nearly 60,000 food, personal care and school supplies items.

Scott Administration apologizes for 246 delayed COVID tests and email error

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WFFF) — The governor of Vermont and his Human Services Secretary apologized Tuesday after hundreds of COVID samples didn’t get to the testing lab. But when people were notified, there was another mistake.

Agency of Human Services Secretary Mike Smith said more than 240 tests arrived in Somerville, Massachusetts early Saturday morning and stayed at the UPS site for nearly 50 hours.

The tests weren’t collected until 8:41 a.m. Monday, November 30. But, by then, they could not be processed. In an attempt to inform those who got tested, the Health Department sent an email regarding the error but, mistakenly, informed the wrong people.

“Let me apologize, personally. None of this should have happened,” said Secretary Smith.

One of those recipients was Jake Fortin, who noticed an email from the Department of Health in his inbox. “I was just confused because I was just like I haven’t even taken my test yet so how can my test results not come in or get mishandled,” he said.

While Fortin scheduled a COVID test, it was not for another few days. One by one, Fortin received numerous responses from Vermonters who were just as perplexed as him. Others responded harshly, realizing their first and last name were visible to hundreds of strangers.

 “I kind of stepped back. I was just like okay, whatever, ignoring it. Seeing what happened. But it definitely blew up my inbox for a while last night,” said Fortin.

Quickly, the Department of Health recalled the email and sent out an additional apology. Fortin says no results or testing information was sent out.

“Nobody’s specific test information was put out there, it was just all of our contact information is now out there and everybody could kind of reply or chime into the conversation,” said Fortin.

Secretary Mike Smith says his agency will expedite the tests of those who got tested and continue to investigate the delivery issue and email error. 

“After administering literally tens of thousands of tests to vermonters, this is the first time there was a slip up of this magnitude,” said Secretary Smith.

The Scott Administration urges Vermonters to keep getting tested and is working to ensure a sensitive situation like this doesn’t happen again.
