Nearly a year after the first case of coronavirus was confirmed in the U.S., officials began issuing the first round of coronavirus vaccines this week. POLITICO’s Dan Diamond and Rachel Roubein break down what the historic moment means for frontline workers — and why getting the whole country vaccinated won’t be easy. Plus, Biden taps Brenda Mallory to lead the White House Council on Environmental Quality. And the Federal Reserve is giving a slightly better forecast for the economy.
