Joe Biden asks Anthony Fauci, the federal coronavirus expert, to become his chief medical adviser.

Frontline healthcare workers and vulnerable populations are among those expected to be first to get the vaccine.

President-elect Joe Biden told CNN on Thursday that he asked Dr. Anthony Fauci, the expert on the coronavirus pandemic, to become his chief medical adviser and part of his Covid-19 response team.

Fauci had told CBS News that he would meet Thursday Biden’s transition team to discuss the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Help is on the way in terms of vaccines," Biden told an online roundtable with workers and small-business owners Wednesday.

Biden told reporters Tuesday that his staffers have spoken with Fauci, but that he hadn't spoken directly with him.

Biden is expected to name his health team next week, after already announcing his foreign-affairs and economics teams. »
