The Food and Drug Administration officially recommends the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine for emergency use authorization for people 16 and older.
ABC Investigative Reporter Aaron Katersky joins Nikki Medoro Friday morning to explain vaccine distribution. Shots will begin for health care workers and nursing home residents, widespread access to the general public is not expected until the spring.
