CHICAGO – There is reportedly no ‘reserve’ of COVID-19 vaccine.
According to the Washington Post, no such COVID-19 vaccine reserves exist, despite the Trump Administration telling state governments otherwise.
Reports indicate the Trump Administration shipped second doses in December, and now have no additional doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine to allocate to states across the nation.
Last night, I received disturbing news, confirmed to me directly by General Perna of Operation Warp Speed: States will not be receiving increased shipments of vaccines from the national stockpile next week, because there is no federal reserve of doses.— Governor Kate Brown (@OregonGovBrown) January 15, 2021
This is appalling. Minnesotans are sick of false promises from the Trump Administration. After promising a surge of doses, the Administration is now pulling out the rug from under our seniors, teachers, and every Minnesotan eagerly awaiting the vaccine.https://t.co/io2Z1TZnu6— Governor Tim Walz (@GovTimWalz) January 15, 2021
Governors were told repeatedly by @HHSgov there was a strategic reserve of vaccines, and this week, the American people were told it’d be released to increase supply of vaccine.— Governor Jay Inslee (@GovInslee) January 15, 2021
It appears now that no reserve exists. The Trump admin. must answer immediately for this deception. https://t.co/JJky0NcbPi
