White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern joined Fox News’s Varney & Co Friday to give the latest updates on Operation Warp Speed.
Morgenstern said Operation Warp Speed is on track to far exceed Joe Biden’s goal of 100 million vaccines in his first 100 days in office.
“We are on page to far exceed that goal on that timeline over the course of the next several months,” Morgenstern said. “If it were only 100 million talking about March or April, that would actually be behind schedule. We’re talking about getting to 100 million by February potentially.”
“The man’s trying to take credit for the president’s achievement,” Stuart Varney said of Biden. “I think the president deserves full credit for what he has achieved.”
Morgenstern then said he expects shipments of the vaccinations to go out this weekend and begin possible distribution on Monday.
“We anticipate the FDA finally issuing the authorization, they’ve already given the signal, that means we think there will be shipments happening over the weekend and that we can have shots in arms as early as Monday,” Morgenstern said.
“That is extraordinary news for America thanks to President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.”
Decisions on allocating vaccines are up to the states, and their plans must be approved by the federal government. The vaccine supply will be divided up based on population size. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention will issue guidelines outlining priority populations and the order in which the vaccinations should be distributed. The CDC guidelines are recommendations, not requirements.

Nebraska woman who detransitioned sues doctors who facilitated removal of ‘healthy breasts’ when she was a teen battling mental health
Nebraska woman Luka Hein is suing Nebraska Medicine, the Nebraska Medical Center, and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Physicians who facilitated in her gender transition when she was a teenager; Hein has since detransitioned.
Hein, who is being represented by the Center for American Liberty, filed the suit last week, for removal of her healthy breasts when she was a depressed teenager who struggled with mental health.
“Proceeding straight to breast amputation in a depressed, anxiety-ridden, gender-confused adolescent, who was incapable of understanding the lasting consequences of her decision, constitutes negligence for which Defendants are jointly and severally liable,” the lawsuit states.
Fox News reports:
Throughout adolescence, Hein struggled with her mental health and traumatic experiences, including being allegedly groomed and threatened by an adult man. She had serious mental-health struggles at age 13. By 15 she was diagnosed with “gender identity disorder” and put on a fast track to have her breasts removed, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims that despite Hein’s history, doctors rushed her into gender transition without considering her psychological comorbidities. It says the defendants used deceptive euphemisms and unscientific terminology to sell gender-transition procedures to Hein.
For instance, their use of the phrase “masculinizing hormone therapy” was misleading as the process does not heal the patient but does “inflict harm that causes malfunctioning and malformation of the teenage body and brain,” according to the lawsuit. Testosterone injections, which Hein received as part of her attempted sex change, can cause many negative side effects including high blood pressure and permanent bodily changes such as the development of an Adam’s apple, deepening of the voice, abnormal hair growth, and male pattern balding of the scalp.
The lawsuit says defendants were also negligent in other ways, such as in their shifting from a standard medical diagnosis to the “affirming care” model, which embraces a person’s gender delusion as fact and discourages questioning.
Allegedly one doctor, Nahia J. Amoura, was prepared to go even further. “About a year after starting Luka on testosterone, Dr. Amoura recommended to Luka that she surgically remove her uterus in a partial hysterectomy as the next step in her ‘transition,’” the lawsuit states. The hysterectomy would have permanently sterilized Hein and created hormonal imbalances that would have required long-term medical follow-ups.
