Firehouse Closures Due To Vaccine Mandate
FOX - Several Fire Department companies in New York City were reportedly out of service this week because a large number of firefighters called out sick. The callouts could potentially be related to firefighters protesting the city’s vaccine mandate for municipal workers that recently went into effect. City Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro has since deemed the situation as unacceptable. "The excessive sick leave by a group of our Firefighters because of their anger at the vaccine mandate for all city employees is unacceptable, contrary to their oaths to serve, and may endanger the lives of New Yorkers," Nigro said in a statement. "Despite these actions by some, the Department will continue to respond to all calls for help that come our way."

The Declassified COVID-19 Origins Report
CNN - The US intelligence community released a declassified report this week that confirmed that while it has not reached a conclusion on the origins of COVID-19, the report still offered fresh details on how the intelligence community approached its 90-day investigation into the matter. Ultimately, the intelligence community remains stalemated in its hunt for the pandemic's origins. Without better cooperation from Beijing, the paper's authors write, "persistent information gaps" on the pandemic's origins are likely to remain. "The global scientific community does not know exactly where, when, or how the first human infection with [the coronavirus] occurred," the report concludes.

CDC Panel Recommends Pfizer's Vaccine For Kids
CNBC - Children ages 5 to 11 are now be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine after the CDC cleared Pfizer’s doses for younger kids this week. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, authorized the vaccine hours after a unanimous recommendation by the agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The vaccine will be given to kids in smaller doses, one-third of the dosage given to teens and adults. “Too many children have either lost a parent or become orphaned in this pandemic, which is incredibly tragic,” committee member Dr. Camille Kotton said just before the vote. “So as an infectious disease specialist and a mother who has vaccinated both of her children, I am fully supportive of recommending this vaccine for this age cohort.”
