Earlier this month when Mr. Donald Trump and his administration officials said they planned to have 20 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine distributed by the end of the year. But according to data provided by the officials of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just over 11.4 million doses have been distributed and only 2.1 million people of the United States have received their first dose.
Whereas, the agency notes that its data might lag the actual number of doses administered as states and jurisdictions report up the data. But the representatives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cleared on their official vaccine site that,
“A large difference between the number of doses distributed and the number of doses administered is expected at this point in the COVID vaccination program due to several factors, including delays in reporting of administered doses, management of available vaccine stocks by jurisdictions, and pending launch of vaccination through the federal Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program,”
President-elect Mr. Joe Biden criticized the administration of Mr. Donald Trump on Tuesday for their efforts to distribute and administer the Covid-19 vaccine shots, and predicted that
“Things will get worse before they get better and that the administration has failed to meet its own goals when it comes to the pandemic.”
Criticizing Mr. Donald Trump’s administration at a news briefing saying that,
“The Trump administration’s plan to distribute vaccines is falling behind, far behind, As I long feared and warned, the effort to distribute and administer the COVID-19 vaccine is not progressing as it should.”
President-elect Mr. Joe Biden said that he has directed his team to put much more aggressive efforts that his administration will “move heaven and earth” to speed up the distribution and administration of the Covid-19 vaccines once he takes office on Jan. 20.
Mr. Donald Trump reiterated his administration’s vow to have administered 100 million doses of vaccine by his 100th day in office. But to meet the desired goal, Biden warned that,
“It would take ramping up five to six times the current pace to 1 million shots a day.”
Mr. Joe Biden ensured that his team and administration will act more uncompromisingly and aggressively to increase administration of the Covid-19 vaccine shots, but even at 1 million per day, it will take months to vaccinate the majority of the population of the United States. Encouraging Americans to steal their spines or challenges to come and added that,
“This is going to be the greatest operational challenge we have ever faced as a nation,” Moreover he added. “We are going to get it done. It’s going to take a vast new effort. It’s not yet underway.”
Moreover Mr. Joe Biden shared his remarks in Wilmington, Delaware on Tuesday stating that,
“We need to be honest – the next few weeks and months are going to be very tough, very tough for our nation. Maybe the toughest during this entire pandemic.”
