United States has started the vaccination of the novel coronavirus vaccine, but negative news about the vaccine is constantly exposed.
According to U.S. media reports, in an attempt to obtain the priority of vaccination against the novel coronavirus, the wealthy class and business giants in the United States did not hesitate to do everything possible.
According to the plan, California medical staff and long-term residents of nursing homes are the first to be vaccinated.
According to the Los Angeles Times on the 18th, in order to obtain priority vaccination rights, some wealthy Americans went directly to the hospital to ask if they could exchange a dose of vaccine if they donated $25,000.
In response, U.S. regulators warned that the initial scarcity of the coronavirus vaccine may lead to underground transactions such as the “black market”.
Relevant medical staff may take advantage of their jobs to obtain vaccines and sell them at high prices on the black market.
In addition to individuals who use their economic power to obtain priority vaccination privileges, some large companies and consortia in the United States are also trying to obtain vaccines early.
The Wall Street Journal recently revealed that Amazon is lobbying the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to try to put its employees on the list of “essential workers” so as to get a vaccine before ordinary people.
Moreover, in addition to Amazon, the CDC has received similar applications from several giants in the catering, aviation and real estate industries.
Previously, bank practitioners had booked priority vaccination positions in advance through this method.
U.S. public opinion strongly criticized this, saying that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put bank workers before teachers and nursing home nurses is the result of the government’s capital infiltration.
