Hospitals around the country have been thrown into confusion after the Trump administration informed state after state that they’ll be getting 25%-40% fewer COVID vaccine doses next week than they’d been expecting…
…A senior administration official told me [Mike Allen at AXIOS] that the states had been relying on planning numbers that were reduced because Pfizer committed to supplying fewer doses than originally forecast…
Pfizer said in their statement: “No shipments containing the vaccine are on hold or delayed. This week, we successfully shipped all 2.9 million doses that we were asked to ship by the U.S. Government to the locations specified by them.”
“We have millions more doses sitting in our warehouse but, as of now, we have not received any shipment instructions for additional doses.
As usual, there isn’t anyone in the administration who can tell his ass from his elbow when it comes to protecting American lives in this pandemic. You know which one ain’t the elbow.
