Before leaving, Biden informs journalists that he has a worldwide COVID vaccine plan.
The White House refused public information. Jake Sullivan, National Security Consultant, said Thursday more information is coming.
It will allow us to talk about further measures the USA has undertaken, to help donate more doses to the world’s poor countries, and to leverage its efforts to enhance the commitment of the world’s democracies to supply developing-world vaccines to help end this pandemic once and for all.
In addition to the 300 million the US has purchased from Pfizer and continues to distribute across the USA, it would take 500 million doses planned. However, with vaccine doses continuing, government officials have stopped ordering large shipments, in particular with the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Only 11 million of the 21 million U.S. doses provides through the Federal Government who administering according to data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Supply Of Vaccines
Now, before many expire, the Biden administration is trying to determine what to do with the additional doses. Ohio has warned that it will expire this month with some 200.000 vaccine doses, with Arkansas counting 70.000. The federal government has received about 872,000 doses from Mississippi.
In a statement, J&J said that it is working in partnership with the federal government to extend its lifetime to the vaccine dose and the federal government officials are using logistics to possibly ship additional doses abroad.
The Federal government engages to ensure that vaccine uses either in the United States or elsewhere. One spokesman for the State Department said to ABC News.
However, this process can be somewhat complex. Officials say with the US first having to coordinate with a country’s medical agency to share information about safety and regulation. As well as deliver supplies such as needles, sirens, and spirits. Specific handling requirements are also imposing on vaccines including temperature that control storage. They will work in the next few weeks to get countries to receive doses. Also arms shots as quickly as possible. The German State Department said in a declaration.
Dr. Anthony Fauci who is Biden’s chief medical adviser and the country’s top infectious disease expert called for a global solution to the variant on Wednesday. When the virus spreads rapidly elsewhere, the danger is that new, more harmful varieties may appear.
There is a possibility of a variant emerging that would escape a vaccine Fauci told MSNBC on Wednesday.
