FILE PHOTO: A medical worker prepares to administer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at a drive-through COVID-19 vaccination site at the Strawberry Festival Fairgrounds in Plant City, Florida, U.S. January 13, 2021. “We’ve been getting resupply right now at a very paltry level of about 100,000 doses a week,” de Blasio said on WNYC radio. At least one New York City healthcare system canceled vaccination appointments and another suspended new ones. A Mount Sinai Hospital spokeswoman said “sudden changes in vaccine supply” forced it to cancel appointments through next Tuesday. According to the CDC, however, New York state has administered only about 757,000 doses of the 1.9 million it has received.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday on Brian Lehrer’s radio show that the city would run out of doses by next week. Officials in New York State warned this week that they were growing increasingly worried about the supply, pleading with federal officials to increase the amount of doses they send every week. About 100,000 of them go to New York City, Mr. de Blasio said on Friday. Until recently, New York City had been struggling to quickly administer the doses it had received, and a large backlog of doses had built up. But as those new sites opened, the supply of vaccine doses that had been directed to some hospitals appeared to diminish.

That’s going to be the single number-one difference maker.”President-elect Joe Biden is scheduled to unveil a $1.9 trillion plan later on Thursday.

Across the country, many teachers, including those in neighboring New Jersey, are still not eligible to receive the vaccine. Many of the 50 million public students in the United States are still taking their classes online, almost a year after the virus shut down schools nationwide. In Chicago, where teachers are not getting vaccinated yet, the powerful teachers union is pushing back against the district requiring teachers to return to classrooms as it gradually reopens school buildings. In-person education has resumed for some in New York City public schools and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said this week he was eager to get more children back in the classroom.

New York Attorney General Letitia James has sued the city of New York, as well as its mayor and police commissioner to install a monitor to oversee the police department, alleging civil rights abuses, including by officers at protests over the death of George Floyd. "No one is above the law — not even the individuals charged with enforcing it," James said Thursday. This boy had his hands up when an NYPD ofcr pulled his mask down and pepper sprayed him. "With today’s lawsuit, this longstanding pattern of brutal and illegal force ends." James said that she does not think that every officer is problematic, but that the city has a "systemic problem," that needs to be addressed.

The federal lawsuit alleges New York City police repeatedly and without justification used batons and other physical force against protesters, many of whom were never charged with a crime, causing broken bones and concussions among other injuries. The lawsuit said the police violated protesters’ rights and is seeking a court order to mandating policies, training and monitoring to assure and end to the unlawful practices.

(Reuters) - New York’s state attorney general on Thursday sued New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and the city’s police commissioner over allegations the police used excessive force against racial justice protesters after the killing of George Floyd in May. In addition to excessive force, state Attorney General Letitia James alleged police detained hundreds of protesters, medics and observers without probable cause. In late May, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo expressed alarm over “disturbing violent clashes” between New York Police Department officers and protesters, and appointed James to investigate and produce a report. In her preliminary report in July, James recommended that the mayor give up sole control over the police commissioner’s hiring. In December, a separate report by the New York City Department of Investigation found the NYPD used excessive force and blamed the response on the failure of most officers to receive “relevant training” in policing such protests.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, calls for the NYPD to undertake systemic reforms to be overseen by an independent monitor. "There is no question that the NYPD engaged in a pattern of excessive, brutal, and unlawful force against peaceful protesters," James said in a statement accompanying the lawsuit.

Swarms of New Yorkers lined up at Brooklyn Grand Army Terminal seeking the vaccine, but officials said there was not enough for people without appointments. But as swarms of New Yorkers descended on the vaccination site, the mayor's office tweeted that the shots are reserved for people with appointments, and the Facebook post was a "bogus" rumor. Approximately 500 people were in line at Brooklyn Army Terminal around 5pm, Jessica Valenti tweeted, in a message she deleted hours later. Another Twitter user, Stephen Lurie, posted a video of people standing in line at Brooklyn Army. Neidhart also wrote in a tweet that the mayor's office would be sending someone to clear up the line.

However, the Brooklyn Army Terminal is a 24/7 vaccination site, so having thawed vaccines left over at the end of the day was not a concern there.

Nationwide, only about one-third of the 29.4 million doses distributed to states have been administered, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The daily toll brought the number of U.S. COVID-19 casualties to 380,524, with the number of cases at 22.7 million by Tuesday night, more than any other country. The virus is projected to take more than 108,000 lives this month before death rate ebbs as move vaccine is administered, the IHME said. A leveling-off of the number of COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization has emerged as an encouraging sign in the past week.

Congressional efforts to investigate members of the military and law enforcement agencies in the past, however, have largely been stymied.
