I had a member argue that Trump admin screwed up on Covid including the vaccine and it's distribution. Under Operation Warp Speed, a Trump initiative, multiple vaccines were created and approved in less than a year. Even the haters acknowledge that was impressive.

By any measure, that was a positive thing, and was anything but a failure.

So while the Federal government has delivered the vaccine, the states have not done well as the administration part. They are not getting it into the arms of the people. So more vaccine isn't the issue, better planning and execution is the fix.
Know the facts, not just the feelz.

Same problem here, but you have to admit, getting into arms is a bit more involved than obtaining it. We were notified by Pfizer yesterday that supply will be cut in half for the next 3 months, multiple fails to go around!

Yes. States need guidance and assistance from the Feds, this is a massive undertaking. Too bad there hasn't been any as yet, every state for itself.

Also, too bad the Feds lied.



Vaccine reserve was exhausted when Trump administration vowed to release it, dashing hopes of expanded access

Some states can't make up their minds how they're going to pass it out.

We're rolling into a wider distribution phase now, so I expect our level of doses to go up if we've got a decent distribution apparatus in place in the state here.

They kept the first phase pretty narrow, but the next one is much wider, including to individuals 65+ and high risk adults at large. So the pools of people able to be vaccinated should be expanded quite a bit.

CDC released recommendations on how to prioritize people, and the states have had apparatus in place forever for giving vaccines.

They knew these were coming in advance, so how hard should it have been for states to have plans? Mine has had a plan in place since September/October.

The prioritization is being carried out. Apparatus to administer hundreds of thousands, millions of vaccinations? Very many of which require very special handling?

There has never been a vaccination program on this scale. Feds said, "You figure it out. You pay for it."

Not to mention the lie about releasing something that didn't exist.

If State leaders do not have the ability to handle the Logistics of the vaccine then the leaders of those States should step down immediately.

If the infrastructure doesn't exist at the state level, then the Feds aren't going to have it to work with either.

Why don't they use the same plan to deploy the vaccine that they used to test for covid?

And yet the hard part of developing a vaccine has been accomplished. It shows the ineptitude of State Government.

Here in Nevada our government is doing a very good job.
Not that I will ever take the vaccine, but hey man the job is getting done.
So yes I will agree it is up to the top to figure out how to get it done. We did it sooooo....

Because that was a royal clusterfark when it started out too.

I think it just depends on how a state is organized. Some are better than others.

The problem is that you can't overrun the state from the Federal level, and that's not really a problem. If your government is an inept mess, then you get what you largely voted for.

But now it is not. People know where to go to get tested. It should be the same place to get the vaccine.
