CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP ADMIN/VACCINES: “As I’ve said before, we will use the Defense Production Act to work with private industry to accelerate the making of materials needed to supply and administer the [coronavirus] vaccine, from tubes and syringes to protective equipment…
As we made clear earlier this month, the Trump administration policy of holding back close to half of the supply did not make sense.
My administration will release the vast majority of the vaccines when they are available, so more people can get vaccinated quickly, while still retaining a small reserve for any unforeseen shortages or delays.
Let me be clear: we are not changing the FDA’s recommended dosing schedule. We believe it is critical that everyone should get two doses within that FDA recommended timeframe.”
