The Pentagon announced last week that Pentagon chiefs and top military officials would be vaccinated voluntarily and publicly. Their purpose is to inform the public about the effectiveness and safety of vaccines.

Vaccination has begun in the United States since Monday when the death toll from the coronavirus dropped to 300,000. Health workers and nurses are being given priority in this case.

About 3 million doses of vaccine will be provided by Wednesday. By the end of December, about 20 million Americans are receiving the vaccine. About 100 million Americans will be vaccinated by the end of March.
