Facing public skepticism about rushed COVID-19 vaccines, U.S. health officials are planning an extra layer of safety scrutiny for the first people vaccinated when shots become available.

Meanwhile, college football suffered more setbacks as coaches and players tested positive. The Southeastern Conference has had to postpone two games in the last three days because of positive COVID-19 tests.
