U.S. plans to distribute COVID-19 vaccine immediately after regulators authorize it | Reuters

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. government on Wednesday said it will start distributing a COVID-19 vaccine within one day of regulatory authorization as it plans for the possibility that a limited number of vaccine doses may be available at the end of the year.

Officials from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Defense on Wednesday held a call with reporters and then released documents on the distribution plans that it is sending to the states and local public health officials.

“Our goal at Operation Warp Speed, is that 24 hours after (regulatory authorization) is issued, we have vaccine moving to administration sites,” one of the officials said.

The federal government will allocate vaccines for each state based on the critical populations recommended first for vaccination by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Sounds great but politics will get in the way.

Translation: "States that kiss Trump's ass will be the first to receive it, states against Trump can **** off and die".

And people wonder why I think what I do about Trump supporters.

Pfizer, one of the leaders in the vaccine/money race states that they plan on having a few hundred thousand vaccines available as soon as it's approved. Unfortunately there are a few hundred million of us who need it.

Consequently such announcements can be accepted two different ways. One as a play for more money and the other as a play for votes, all depending on who one is quoting.
