LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts held a press conference on the state's ongoing work to support coronavirus vaccination efforts and help Nebraskans get back to a more normal life.

Ricketts did so virtually out of precaution due to possible exposure. He tested negative today, five days out from his exposure.

As for vaccine dosage supply, Ricketts said the state is receiving more from Moderna and will start to get more from Pfizer by the end of the month.

Johnson and Johnson submitted documentation to the FDA emergency-use authorization of its vaccine. With that, Nebraska could see even more vaccines entering the state by the end of the month.
