The U.S. secured an additional 200 million doses of coronavirus vaccine, ensuring that the US will have enough COVID-19 vaccines by July 2021. President Joe Biden, speaking at the National Institutes of Health, announced Thursday that the purchase will increase the US vaccine supply by 50% to 600 million doses. “We have to stay vigilant, we have to stay focused and for God’s sake, we have to remember who we are,” Biden said. He said that the country can do this. “We are the United States of America,” the president added.

Enough COVID-19 Vaccines

The president announced that pharmaceutical companies are stepping up on the delivery timelines. For example, an earlier 100 million vaccines committed by the end of June will now arrive by the end of May.  Biden said the administration secured enough doses from suppliers Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech that they can vaccinate every American by the end of July. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the federal government paid around $2 billion to Pfizer for additional doses, and $1.65 billion to Moderna. The US will have enough COVID-19 vaccines to inoculate the American population twice over. 

However, the additional extra doses order won’t be immediately available. The current supply issues are still there. Instead, the extra 200 million doses will act as a buffer when initial supplies run out. 

Biden Blames Trump

Also, Biden delivered scathing remarks aimed at former President Donald Trump, saying he didn’t do enough to plan for the vaccination rollout. “My predecessor,  to be very blunt about it, did not do his job in getting ready for the massive challenge of vaccinating hundreds of millions of Americans,” Biden said. “It’s no secret that the vaccination program was in much worse shape than my team and I anticipated,” he added. 

The Trump administration did secure 400 million doses during the earlier stages of the pandemic. Under Operation Warp Speed, the federal government managed to secure commitments of vaccines under development. Once they receive an FDA Emergency Use Authorization, the US gets priority batches. However, the Trump White House received criticisms for not arranging the distribution to individual states. The administration delegated the part where Americans receive the vaccines to the individual states. “When I became president three weeks ago, America had no plan to vaccinate most of the country. It was a big mess. It is going to take time to fix, to be blunt with you,” Biden said. 

Increasing Pace Of Deliveries

States and federal officials argued over who should shoulder the last stage of deliveries. Despite the complaints. states averaged near 900,000 vaccinations a day. Now, the pace increased to 1.5 million inoculations a day per state. 

In addition, more vaccines from a third supplier might arrive soon. Johnson & Johnson applied for a EUA for their coronavirus vaccine. The FDA will review the candidate vaccine this month.    The J&J version requires a single dose, compared to earlier vaccines that need two doses two weeks apart. This will help improve delivery rates. Moreover, the J&J vaccine requires easier storage.  Currently, the US government has a standing 100 million doses contract. The company says they can supply the entire order by midyear. In addition, two other pharma companies,  AstraZeneca PLC and Novavax Inc. are on deck to supply an additional 400 million doses once they get clearance. 

33 Million First Doses

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that at present, the government already managed to issue 33 million first doses. In addition, more than 10 million people had been fully vaccinated.

    Biden ALWAYS TRIES to take credit on stuff OTHERS DO

    Some good things happened in 2020 ~
    Government PREVIOUS TO FDA APPROVALS put in ‘standing orders’ for many hundred of millions of vials (doses) of Vaccines !!!
    Then it paid to get special syringes to get ‘every last drop’ out if the vials when standard syringes didn’t.

    Smart move as EU is furious that drugs made in their countries are being shipped out to others. Why, because they did not pre-order.

    Why is it the democrats always blame someone else. plain stupidity!

  • Avatar Chas says:

    China Joe said he would take care of the China virus when he got into office, and now here is his chance! President Trump did the hard part, now let’s see if China Joe can bring it home. More than likely he won’t be able to, because the morons above pulling the strings haven’t got it in them, unless it’s trying to undue everything President has done for this great nation. To make matters worse, China Joe is letting 10,000 of thosands of illegals in to this country on the Mexican border, all whom are more than likely already carriers of the China virus and other god knows what… Spreading there virus even more into the United States. This is going to be interesting to see how this administration is going to handle all these issues they seem to be creating upon themselves. Grab the popcorn folks!!!!!

    Piss on Joe and his Hoe VP. His presidency along with everything else about him is a fraud.

  • Avatar Retired4ever says:

    Probably enough vaccines however politicians are involved in the distribution and therefore the “people” won’t get vaccinated, the vaccines will go to as as has already happened.

  • Avatar Jo says:

    I dont want your damn vaccine nor can you make me. I have the china virus and it was not as bad as the Democrats said it was. And i can not stand Joe blow hard and his side kick Camel toe. They are the biggest joke in history.

    I dont believe in vacines. There is no proof they r effective. They took Robt Kennedy Jr off the media bec of “disinformation”. Censorship extraordinaire!

  • Avatar Elaine says:

    Let’s think about this… mRNA vaccine, why now? Traditionally made vaccines were derived from the dead disease. Now we have the first ever released mRNA vaccine on a disease we barely know nothing about.
    Guess what? The mRNA technology has been around “for years” according to John Hopkins and CDC sites. It has been involved in research for cancer vaccines. How many of those are out for public use?
    So why release a new, unproven vaccine on a disease we know nothing about?? Does anyone find this strange?
    Why haven’t scientists tried mRNA on a disease we have decades of knowledge on like HIV or typhoid or shingles or any of the others?
    Yet, Americans lining up without questioning.

    It doesn’t make sense that all of us have to get vaccinated, wear masks. stay distanced, not go to church etal – When the Biden admin is letting hundreds of people come across our southern boarder not vaccinated – not wearing masks. and I wonder when the last time some of they washed their hands.

  • Avatar masterredfox says:

    All I can say is the producers of these vaccines are raking in the money and controlling the number of vaccines available at any given time. On top of that, we have all these selfish people who feel that they have priority over everyone else, plus the anti-vaxxers, which is adding to the delay. Plus we have states like NYS, that have to put a complicated pre-registration form to qualify for a vaccine, no centralized program that coordinates all sites that can give vaccines, no public announcement of the total of vaccines received so far, versus the number of the population vaccinated correctly (dual doses) and who still need to be vaccinated. And lastly opening the borders to let in more people without fully vaccinated the entire population in the USA, first. Why make it easier for the public to get vaccinated when they (the politicians) are already taken care of.

  • Avatar Mel Davenel says:

    If it were not for President Trump creating Operation Warp Speed, there would be no vaccine!! Thank you Mr. Trump!
