Biden Administration Orders 200 Million More Vaccine Doses
President Biden introduced on Tuesday that his administration was engaged on a deal to safe the doses of coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer and Moderna by the tip of the summer season. The deal is unlikely to speed up the present tempo of vaccination for a number of months.
This will likely be probably the most troublesome operational challenges we’ve ever undertaken as a nation. I’ve mentioned that earlier than, however I need to say it once more, as a result of we’re going to do the whole lot we are able to to get it performed. After a evaluate of the present vaccine provide and manufacturing plans, I can announce that we are going to improve total weekly vaccination distributions to states, tribes and territories from 8.6 million doses to a minimal of 10 million doses. And we imagine that we’ll quickly have the ability to affirm the acquisition of an extra 100 million doses for every of the 2 F.D.A.-authorized vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna. That’s 100 million extra doses of Pfizer and 100 million extra doses of Moderna — 200 million extra doses than the federal authorities had beforehand secured. Not in hand but, however ordered. We count on these further 200 million doses to be delivered this summer season. We didn’t get into this mess in a single day. And it’s going to take months for us to show issues round. But let me be equally clear: We’re going to get via this. We will defeat this pandemic.
