Biden criticizes Trump’s Covid vaccine rollout as Harris gets innoculation
At a coronavirus briefing, the president-elect warned distribution ‘is falling far behind’ and vowed to ramp up vaccination efforts
Joe Biden has lambasted the Trump administration’s vaccine rollout, warning that distribution “is falling behind, far behind”, hours after Kamala Harris received her first dose of Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine live on television as part of officials’ ongoing efforts to show the public that the vaccinations are safe.
“A few weeks ago the Trump administration suggested that 20 million Americans could be vaccinated by the end of December,” Biden said, at a Covid-19 briefing in Wilmington, Delaware on Tuesday. “With only a few days left in December, we have only vaccinated a few million so far.”
