The White House COVID-19 Response Team and federal public health officials will hold a coronavirus task force briefing on Wednesday morning.
The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. but delays are possible. It will be livestreamed in this article when it’s available.
The officials will hold a briefing a day after the average number of Americans getting second shots of the COVID-19 vaccine hit an all-time high — 539,000 per day over the past week, according to the Associated Press.
White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients announced Tuesday that states will see their allocation of doses rise to 11 million per week beginning next week, up more than 2 million weekly doses since President Joe Biden took office.
Since the vaccine was authorized in late December, about 33 million people in the U.S. have received shots.
