Several hundred White House employees have now been vaccinated, two administration officials tell CNN, with more expected in the coming weeks.
Most officials who have received vaccinations work for the Executive Office of the President, meaning they operate inside the White House complex, either in the West Wing or Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door. Dozens of staffers are still working remotely but the White House is prioritizing vaccinations for people who work on site and aims to eventually vaccinate all in-person staff, an official told CNN.
Even with the vaccinations, White House officials are still wearing masks when on the grounds and many are working from home or participating in virtual meetings from their offices.
The staffers, including those who have been working remotely, came to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building today for their first vaccinations.
