Andy Slavitt stepped down from President Joe Biden’s Covid-19 response team on Wednesday, ending his run as a senior adviser to the White House’s pandemic response team amid a vaccination campaign that has slowed in recent weeks.
Salvitt’s tenure with the Biden administration was planned as short-term. The senior adviser announced on Tuesday that Wednesday would be his last day at the White House.
“It has been an honor to serve the public as part of President Biden’s COVID response team these past 4 months,” Slavitt said in a Tweet on Wednesday. “As planned, I’m returning to my family today. The nation is in great hands to meet the challenges ahead,” he added.
