As part of a wider effort by the Biden administration, FEMA opened its first COVID-19 mass vaccination sites Tuesday, setting up in Los Angeles and Oakland in communities especially hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Severe weather, meanwhile, was hampering vaccination efforts in parts of the country, forcing cancellation of some mass inoculation events and disrupting vaccine deliveries.
