(Washington, DC) -- A moment of silence is happening Monday night to remember the 500-thousand lives lost to coronavirus.  

The death toll just surpassed that grim milestone, and comes after the White House response team gave an update on vaccines delayed by last week's winter storm.  

Seven million doses are going out to states Monday with the rest to be delivered by mid-week.  

Still, Dr. Anthony Fauci cautions this is no time to relax on wearing masks.
