Washington – The justices on the U.S. Supreme Court are being provided with access to doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Capitol Physician Brian Monahan said in a letter that the court, along with Congress and executive branch agencies, were given a limited supply of doses “for continuity of government operations.”

The doses are being provided under a directive by President Donald Trump that established continuity of government as a reason for vaccine prioritization. Top officials are supposed to be vaccinated “in parallel.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell were vaccinated Friday.
