ICYMI: we added a comment last night from @CDCDirector to the story that says the guidelines "received appropriate attention, consultation and input from task force experts." No mention of @CDCgov scientists. https://t.co/OlQyH5PtUY

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but I find the omission of CDC scientists from this comment to be very revealing, and suggestively so. Like an admission that yes, the scientific process was skipped, and no, he had no say in it because of the task force. https://t.co/yTcOAprYg4

Advisory groups around the world are working out plans for who should get priority access to a #covid19 vaccine: https://t.co/9g67rFJUrT https://t.co/BLhAcKiVCK

The Majority Of Children Who Die From COVID-19 Are Children Of Color https://t.co/75qhrUAAVl

"We really are trying to make sure that people of color, who have been disproportionately impacted, will also have priority — but for the factors that put them at risk, not highlighting just their racial and ethnic makeup" - @helenegayle told me https://t.co/oFJu9wf7Ia

Calling out people by their race/ethnicity for early vaccine access risks alienating groups that already have a tough relationship with mainstream science/health entities, some scientists told me. The worry: Are we being experimented on? Again? https://t.co/NwyUe42Ehy

Black, Asian, Latinx healthcare workers are at 5x higher risk of COVID-19 compared w/general white community, based on data in the US & UK in late March-April. Healthcare workers, in general, at 3x greater risk. Inadequate PPE is unacceptable. @TheLancet https://t.co/RuidiGyyqY

Top science panels are converging on plans for how to hand out the first COVID-19 vaccine doses when it becomes available https://t.co/oFJu9wf7Ia But US states are worried about distribution logistics and a lack of funding/guidance from the CDC https://t.co/2RyP2Tqg6j

This comes as federal & state govts are rapidly ramping up plans for a vaccine distribution. But that effort is confronting a host of logistical challenges. Story w/ @DanCGoldberg below: https://t.co/VRsVL3pdUP

NEW: Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are expected to begin collecting the DNA samples of people arrested across the country later this year, according to two former Department of Homeland Security officials with knowledge of the program. https://t.co/WVSLzjFJeD

AP Exclusive: More migrant women say they didn’t OK surgery (from @AP) https://t.co/bSFgt8z9jH

Even if a successful vaccine is developed by the end of the year, supply-chain delays mean some groups will have to wait. How will we decide who gets protected first? @NidhiSubs reports https://t.co/LbeaPe2TxL

"Particularly at the top, spy agencies remain less diverse than the country they are designed to protect, or even the federal workforce writ large." https://t.co/mLrvRsJkAo via @wstrobel

2020 needed another💀so here we have the zombie peat fires of Siberia emerging in the spring melt to kick off a historic burn in the Arctic https://t.co/twBz2n1Nw4 @alexwitze

A new version of the testing guidance is expected Friday - this has also not been cleared by the CDC's usual internal review for scientific documents https://t.co/qKdK79Ythx reports @apoorva_nyc

NEW article in @ScienceMagazine with @ChristiGuerrin1 @jsherkow & @pzettler, "Self-experimentation, ethics, and regulation of vaccines," prompted by several groups creating Covid-19 vaccines outside the FDA process. https://t.co/tGCWQZJbKZ

Many countries have plans in place to allocate early supplies of vaccines but most expect a FLU pandemic. For COVID-19, the first vaccine plans are taking shape: https://t.co/oFJu9wf7Ia

My latest: Who gets a COVID vaccine first? Access plans are taking shape https://t.co/oFJu9wf7Ia
