Trump says he is ‘not scheduled’ to take Covid-19 vaccine yet & White House staff will get vaccinated ‘somewhat later’

The first wave of Pfizer vaccine inoculations across the US is supposed to be limited to frontline health care specialists and people in high-risk categories, such as the elderly, but the New York Times reported on Sunday that White House staff working close to Trump will cut the line.

According to Trump, however, he personally requested an “adjustment” to be made to the timeline, so that neither he nor his staffers receive the jab ahead of those who need it more.

People working in the White House should receive the vaccine somewhat later in the program, unless specifically necessary… I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time.
