CORONAVIRUS/VACCINES: “If you were to ask most people today, they couldn’t tell you who exactly should be getting vaccinated.
What they do know is there are tens of millions of doses of [coronavirus] vaccines sitting unused in a freezer, while people who want and need the vaccine can’t get it.
We’ll fix the problem by encouraging states to allow more people to get vaccinated beyond health care workers and move through these groups as quickly as states think they can.
That includes anyone 65 and older — a population that has accounted for 80% of the deaths to date.”
