Good morning! Are you desperately trying to figure out when you can receive the vaccine, and where? You’re not alone. Across the country,  states are struggling to get the vaccine into the arms of millions of Americans, with no federally coordinated rollout plan and convoluted technology guiding the way.

TikTok's privacy overhaul: What you need to know
TikTok has announced broad and sweeping changes to the app’s privacy settings for its teenage users. 
The changes affect the default privacy settings for all users under the age of 18, which make up a large portion of TikTok’s user base.
Among the changes: All TikTok users who are between the ages of 13 and 15 have had their default privacy setting on their account changed to private, meaning other users must request permission to see their content. 
TikTok has also removed the ability for others to download or remix videos posted by users aged 13 to 15 with its Duet and Stitch tools. 
TikTok has exploded during the pandemic, but its popularity among young users has raised privacy concerns. A July 2020 report from Statista said 32.5% of TikTok users are between the ages of 10 and 19.
