Biden administration to boost vaccine supply in states by 17% next week

US states wringing their hands at empty cupboards left by the Trump administration are going to be getting a 17 per cent boost in Covid-19 vaccine supply next week.

Latest figures updated on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website Tuesday show that the Biden government plans to form about 10.1 million first and second doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines available next week, up from this week's allotment of 8.6 million.

States have cancelled thousands of appointments over the last week because their supply ran out right round the time Joe Biden was inaugurated.

The Biden administration inherited multiple bottlenecks and shortages, although Pfizer and Moderna have committed an initial 100 million doses each. aceI can't tell you how much vaccines we've ," incoming CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told Fox News. "And if I can't tell it to you, then I can't tell it to the governors, and I can't tell it to the state health officials."

Biden plans to update Americans on the country's vaccine stockpile Tuesday, press secretary Jen Psaki said. The White home is also bringing back Covid-19 briefings 3 times every week.

As of Tuesday, the federal has distributed 44.3 million vaccine doses to states. Of that, 23 million doses, or over 52 percent are administered. About 3.4 million people have received their full two-dose vaccination, and quite 19 million have gotten their first dose, consistent with data from the CDC.

The coronavirus has killed quite 421,000 Americans and infected quite 25 million since the primary case was reported on January 21, 2020. Biden is hoping to urge a minimum of 100 million Americans vaccinated within the first 100 days of his government. he's holding out a way of cautious optimism that any American who wants the vaccine could possibly get it "this Spring."
