The Biden administration will retire the name Operation Warp Speed

The incoming Biden administration will retire the “Operation Warp Speed” name for its push to vaccinate Americans for the coronavirus, incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

A spokesperson for the Biden administration announced on Friday that the incoming administration plans to retire the Trump era name Operation Warp Speed for the national vaccine distribution plan.

Biden will also appoint former FDA chief David Kessler as the chief science officer of the yet-to-be named plan. While many people involved in the distribution plan will remain in place as career public servants, the structure of the distribution plan is also expected to change.
