Flight attendants union says that people who invaded the Capitol should be banned from boarding flights because of safety concerns

We hear from Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which represents people at 20 airlines. “We have a practice of keeping people with an intent to harm others and intend to harm the U.S. government off of our planes,” Nelson said.

How to speed up vaccine rollout

Jan 8, 2021
About 6 million people have gotten a first dose, short of the government’s goal to vaccinate 20 million by the end of 2020.
"I'm hopeful that additional funding to public health will allow public health officials to start setting up publicly accessible, large-scale vaccination clinics," says Dr. Kelly Moore, deputy director of the Immunization Action Coalition.
