this morning with the u.s. adding a second covid-19 vaccine, a dire warning from one of the states needing the vaccine the most, tennessee. >> we're the highest state in the highest country in the world so it's not the place that you want to do. >> reporter: this doctor received the pfizer vaccine on thursday and said the moderna version can't come soon enough to the rural communities they serve. >> getting into smaller towns and rural areas will save countless lives. >> reporter: health experts say the moderna vaccine will be easier to handle. >> it can be stored in a regular freezer and can be stored at room temperature for a few more hours than the pfizer vaccine. although they are safe and effective, we're grateful to have either one. >> reporter: the vaccination campaign began last week. this tracking map by bloomberg showing which states are getting the most vaccines. the rollout a huge logistical undertaking across the country. still this morning dozens of states are expressing frustration, claiming the administration is cutting pfizer

>> morgan chesky, thank you very much. now let's bring in dr. julie morita, the executive vice president of the robert wood johnson foundation, she also serves on president-elect biden's covid advisory board. doctor, good to see you. let's dive right in with news of a second vaccine, moderna being approved. what is the significance of now having two vaccines, and what are the key differences between moderna and pfizer? >> good morning, kristen and peter. thanks for having me. this has really been a challenging and tough year for the united states and throughout the world. with the approval of these two vaccines, it's given us hope and pushed us and given us another step in the right direction of ending this pandemic. the moderna vaccine is very similar to the pfizer vaccine approved last night. the key thing to focus in on is they both are highly effective
vaccines that have similar safety profiles, with limited adverse events, which should be reassuring to the public. the minor differences are related to how the vaccines are stored and not having to freeze the moderna vaccine at ultra cold storage. >> dr. morita, as you heard from governor whitmer and other state leaders say they haven't received the doses they were promised. where are the doses, she asked. what will the biden administration do to overcome those reported shortfalls at this time? >> the president-elect is really committed to ensuring that there are adequate vaccine supplies, but he also recognizes how important it is for us to not just have the vaccine supplies, but that there are -- that there is good acceptance and willingness to get vaccinated and overcoming some of the concerns people have related to the safety or efficacy of the vaccine is going to be critical. in order to have both distribution and also to have
acceptance of the vaccine, congress needs to approve additional funding so we can ensure there is adequate vaccine supply and there's also adequate support so we can actually get the vaccine to communities that need it the most. >> for clarity, president-elect biden promised 100 shots in the arm in his first 100 days in office. is that a realistic promise that he can keep? >> i think for vaccine distribution and reaching the communities and making sure there's adequate supply, that is a realistic goal but we have to have congress approve additional resources. >> dr. morita, very quickly, we saw these extraordinary scenes of our leaders getting vaccinated, vice president mike pence, house speaker nancy pelosi this week. but what more needs to be done in order to instill faith and confidence in this vaccine, particularly among communities of color, which are skeptical? >> i think this is really an important question. we know that traditionally
there's been vaccine hesitancy related to the influenza evacuation lien among communities of color and this is some skepticism about this vaccine in not just communities of color but throughout the nation because of the speed in which it was developed. the key thing to focus on is the process that was used to evaluate the vaccine. the fda's process was thorough and rigorous and we've seen these vaccines are safe and effective. what we need now is to work with the communities of color who have distrust and might have questions because they haven't received the support they need in the past or currently, to get into those communities and hear from them, listen to them, what are their concerns, what information do they need, who do they want to hear from, who do they want to see vaccinated. those can help us address the concerns of hesitancy that communities have. >> getting those questions answered is so important. thank you for joining us on a very significant day. appreciate it. >> thank you. here in washington, congressional leaders still have not reached a deal on covid
relief as many americans nationwide wonder how they're going to find a way to pay their bills, especially during the holidays. nbc's kelly o'donnell is at the white house this morning with the very latest. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, peter. add one more day to months of no action from congress for millions of americans who are in need of that financial help. officials on capitol hill say they are hopeful a final push of negotiations this weekend can result in a deal, but they were also very clear that no votes would happen before tomorrow afternoon. only in washington is the wait before christmas not a joyful part of the season. tensions high. >> i am so frustrated by the inability of us to act like adults with responsibility. >> reporter: late friday lawmakers did manage to pass a short-term funding fix to keep government operations open through the weekend. that will allow more time to
resolve differences over covid relief. >> constant discussions have been under way for several days now. as of right now we have not yet reached a final agreement, regret fully. >> reporter: wrangling continues over specifics in what is expected to be a $900 billion covid package that is likely to include enhanced unemployment benefits, direct checks, and rental and food assistance. >> i would hope very much that this congress appreciates the pain that is out there. >> reporter: friday night president trump celebrated the second brand of covid vaccine getting the green light, tweeting congratulations, the moderna vaccine is now available. a moment of optimism for a president who has remained out of sight and silent. no public appearances since last weekend. that absence making this tweet stand out. the first lady released the
couple's official christmas portrait. meanwhile president-elect joe biden is expected to receive his covid vaccine monday, following other government officials, including the pences and congressional leaders who are eligible under continuity of government provisions. in delaware, mr. biden still had decisions to make to fill out his cabinet. attorney general a major opening. while the biden team touts its rollout of diverse cabinet nominees. and expect more of that today as president-elect biden and vice president-elect kamala harris appear in delaware today to introduce publicly more members of their cabinet. peter. >> kelly, the trump administration is now finally speaking out specifically about that massive hack on government agencies and private companies. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: well, peter, secretary of state mike pompeo is saying what president trump has not, that he believes that pretty clearly russia is behind the cyber attack that has hit
dozens of federal agencies and private companies doing business with the government. it's believed this goes back to as early as march of this year but was just discovered this month. lawmakers who have been briefed on this expressed a lot of frustration and say they have many more unanswered questions. separately, the u.s. has decided to close outlying embassy offices in russia, leaving only the headquarters in moscow for americans abroad and those who are serving in russia. peter, kristen. >> kelly o'donnell on the north lawn at the white house this morning. kelly, thanks so much. well, dylan is enjoying some time off this weekend so we are absolutely thrilled to welcome a very special guest from our station here in d.c., wrc. it is so good to have you and we're thrilled you could be here on our first big day in the studio. >> i'm so excited. the views are absolutely phenomenal from the studio, i can't wait for you to see it. we're talking some activity on
the board. we're coming off the heels of this big winter storm, things are quiet but the question is for how long. here's the system bringing rain into the gulf states, into houston, new orleans, right on up into western tennessee, even some snow in the great lakes. what's going to happen over the next 24 hours is this is going to shift. that rain is going to move into the southeast. we're going to see some showers on sunday in the carolinas, maybe even a few here in the mid-atlantic. northeast could get some light snow showers with all this. how much are we talking? well, some of the heavier totals will be right along that gulf coast line into areas like houston, lake charles, new >> and it's a cold morning here in the bay area. we're waking up to 30s on the map. look at walnut creek. 36 degrees right now and we are expecting a lovely day ahead. overall, mostly clear conditions. a cold 34 degrees, up to fairfax. and here's a quick look at your

underscores what so many people are going through. >> and the challenge about being in the basement, i gave my wife a great review on yelp, she was terrific. when i came up after eight days, the first thing she said i'm going down for the next eight days, you can watch the kids. >> i think that's a fair swap. >> the lighter side of tough times. >> we're so happy to have you back, peter. still ahead right here, keeping their private lives private. a big win in court for prince harry and meghan markle. plus home shopping networks booming during the pandemic. i'll take you on a hehind-t

north bay because it is also very cold through there. fairfax, 34 degrees right now. let's bring it in towards san jose. 39 degrees right now in san jose. so if it's been feeling a little cold as you wake up in the morning that's the reason why. microclimate highs for today, great news, we have high pressure that's going to be rolling in and as that begins to dominate to the weekend it will keep us dry and it will bring us plenty of sunshine. temperatures will remain cool. upper 50s, low 60s. i'll go over the full forecast at 7:00. more people will soon be able to be vaccinated and this vaccine is easier to distribute. the moderna and pfizer vaccines are similar, both use messenger rna activity which instructs the body to attack the coronavirus. both are close to 95% effective after two doses.
the pfizer vaccine requires the sect shot three weeks after the first. moderna requires it four weeks after. but unlike the pfizer vaccine which needs a deep freeze refrigerator to keep it at negative 74 degrees, moderna's only requires storage in a more standard refrigerator. >> you can have more options to be able to distribute to clinics, for example, around let's say san francisco. every clinic, there's no clinics that have a negative 70 but they have fridges. >> they will allow us to distribute even more vaccines particularly to underserved communities, more rural communities, more remote communities in the state. >> the vaccines are headed to california as front line workers are getting shots of the moderna vaccine. this is at san jose and the entire state continues to get hard hit by widespread infections. the soon to be distributed vaccine will be a much-needed
