The fragility of the newly licensed Pfizer vaccine means it will first be delivered only in hospitals. The news came hours after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which advises ministers, said care home residents and staff should be prioritised.

Boris Johnson described the distribution of the vaccine as “an immense logistical challenge” and said it would take months before all of the most vulnerable were protected.

Lorries containing freezer boxes of about 1,000 vials held at -70 to -80C were being loaded at the Pfizer plant in Belgium on Wednesday as news of Britain’s regulatory approval came through.

The boxes will go to a national hub in the Midlands before being

California hit reached another troubling COVID-19 milestone Tuesday, averaging 14,120 cases per day with more than 8,200 hospitalized — both new records.

The continues surge is putting more pressure on state and local officials to take more aggressive action to slow the spread before it overwhelms hospitals. Los Angeles County, which has been particularly hard hit, reported more than 7,500 new cases — the most in a single day. Projections suggest L.A. County could reach 9,000 cases by next week.

Officials have said they would consider a restrictive stay-at-home order if cases kept rising, which is now expected because the Thanksgiving weekend likely spread the virus even more.

What are the options?

It’s possible such an order would

See How a New Kind of Design Retail Space Thrives in Brooklyn

The year 2020 saw the shuttering of many brick-and-mortar stores, as quarantine measures and a slowed economy decreased the traffic that typically sustains physical retail spaces. In the midst of this all, fashion designer turned design collector and curator Alan Eckstein found himself crafting a new kind of design retail space in Brooklyn: The Somerset House, “a spacious, light-filled space in Williamsburg that blends decades and styles to create something totally its own.”
