Biden Criticizes Coronavirus Vaccine Distribution


The next few weeks and months are going to be very tough, a very tough period for our nation — maybe the toughest during this entire pandemic. I know it’s hard to hear, but it’s the truth. We might not see improvement until we’re well into March, as it will take time for our Covid response plan to begin to produce visible progress. So the Trump administration’s plan to distribute vaccines is falling behind — far behind. We’re grateful to the companies, the doctors, the scientists, the researchers, the clinical trial participants in Operation Warp Speed for developing the vaccines quickly. But as I long feared and warned, the effort to distribute and administer the vaccine is not progressing as it should. A few weeks ago, Trump administration suggested that 20 million Americans, could be vaccinated by the end of December. With only a few days left in December, we’ve only vaccinated a few million so far, and the pace of vaccination, the vaccination program, is moving now — as it continues to move as it is now — it’s going to take years, not months, to vaccinate the American people. This is going to be the greatest operational challenge we’ve ever faced as a nation. But we’re going to get it done.
