Biden way short of goal to ship 80 million vaccine doses overseas buy end of June

According to the Associated Press:

President Joe Biden is expected to fall short of his commitment to shipping 80 million COVID-19 vaccine doses abroad by the end of June because of regulatory and other hurdles, officials said as they announced new plans Monday for sharing the shots globally.

The White House announced the final allocations for the doses, with 60 million shots going to the global COVAX vaccine-sharing alliance and 20 million being directed to specific partners. But fewer than 10 million doses have been shipped around the world, including 2.5 million doses delivered to Taiwan over the weekend, and about 1 million doses delivered to Mexico, Canada and South Korea earlier this month.

Officials said that while the U.S.-produced doses are ready, deliveries have been delayed due to U.S. and the recipient countries’ legal, logistical and regulatory requirements.

“What we’ve found to be the biggest challenge is not actually the supply — we have plenty of doses to share with the world — but this is a Herculean logistical challenge,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

Liberals like Jen Psaki are always surprised that government doesn’t work.

Biden is also set to fall short of his goal of giving one shot to at least 70% of U.S. adults.

  1. Trump would have exceeded the goal and way before the deadline.
    JB is a DC beltway hermit, stuck in the old ways of uninspired and unmotivated action that usually results in too little, too late.

    I miss the can-do attitude of the past administration.
