February 8 U.S. media reported that against the backdrop of promoting universal vaccination against the coronavirus, there is a shortage of vaccines in the United States.
Health officials believe that the U.S. does not expect to make vaccines widely available to the public until spring.
According to the American magazine Politico on the 7th local time, although 30 million people in the United States have been vaccinated with the first doses, about 1.3 million doses a day, the means of transportation of vaccine are limited, and the government is worried that calling for universal vaccination will not meet everyone’s vaccination needs.
As a result, most of the $1 billion spent on vaccine promotion has been temporarily “frozen”.
Health officials believe that propaganda is meaningless when few Americans can get vaccinated. The U.S. is not expected to make a vaccine widely available to the public until spring.
Mark Weber, federal official in charge of anti-epidemic propaganda, said: “Before calling on people to be vaccinated, we should ensure that people can get vaccines. We are not ready for this.
Other sources say this is one of the biggest problems the U.S. government has encountered.
The report said that the federal government increased the delivery of vaccines to the states by about 20% in the next three weeks, but federal officials believe that the increase in the supply of vaccines will be very limited. Officials remain cautious about pushing for a large scale of vaccinations before the expected surge in the number of cases.
