TED SHAFFREY: This is "AP News Minute." President Joe Biden's administration will begin providing COVID-19 vaccines to US pharmacies, part of its plan to ramp up vaccinations. The government will initially ship about 1 million doses to some 6,500 pharmacies around the country, starting next week.

Two FBI agents have been killed and three wounded while trying to serve a search warrant involving violence against children in Sunrise, Florida. The suspect also died.

The Senate has approved Pete Buttigieg to be transportation secretary, making him the first openly gay person confirmed to a cabinet post. He is tasked with rebuilding the nation's infrastructure and fighting climate change.

Punxsutawney Phil this morning emerged from his burrow, and he saw his shadow, thereby predicting six more weeks of winter. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, revelers could not attend in person, but they were represented on site by cardboard cutouts. Ted Shaffrey, the Associated Press, with "AP News Minute."
