[QUOTE]President Joe Biden announced several changes to the country’s COVID-19 vaccine supply and distribution plans late Tuesday, in an effort to streamline and increase vaccinations in states, tribal areas and territories.
[QUOTE]Biden also stated that the U.S. vaccine distribution policy would become more regular and predictable. To-date, governors have bemoaned the irregularity of deliveries of unknown quantities, which made scheduling appointments nearly impossible week-to-week in most states.
[QUOTE]“Until now we’ve had to guess how much vaccine to expect for the next week. From this week forward ... we will ensure states tribes and territories will always have a reliable three-week forecast,” Biden said.
[QUOTE]The allocation will also increase to about 10 million doses weekly, or about 1.4 million more than currently allocated, Biden said. The more than 15% increase in doses is also a significant increase from the nearly 4 million per week being shipped prior to Biden taking office.

President Joe Biden vowed on Tuesday the COVID vaccine will be available to every American 'by the end of July' will millions of additional doses on the way and predicted herd immunity may be achieved as early as Christmas.
Biden made the promise during a CNN town hall on the pandemic as his administration faces questions about its target numbers to get the vaccine into the arms of every American.
The first question from moderator Anderson Cooper was 'when is every American who wants it going to be able to get a vaccine.'
'By the end of July of this year,' Biden responded. 'By the end of July, we'll have over 600 million doses enough to vaccinate every single American.'
He claimed not enough vaccines were available when he took office on January 20th.
'We came into office there was only 50 million doses that are available,' he said. His administration has repeatedly criticized the Trump administration for not having enough doses of the vaccine or a plan in place to distribute it.

The Biden administration is planning to provide states with estimates of their expected vaccine shipments likely months ahead of time rather than weeks, according to multiple sources with knowledge.
The longer planning window, which is expected to start as soon as next week, could address concerns from governors who had complained that limited shipment forecasts affect their ability to plan vaccination clinics and figure out where to steer doses. And it represents the growing confidence among vaccine makers and the Biden administration in the production of shots, with substantial boosts in supply expected over the coming weeks.

R58, they did that because people take off their mask at the dentist’s office. Anyone cleaning the room is cleaning a room that’s had a bunch of Covid-denying Republicans who go everywhere with no masks in it. I’d be happy if they gave the dentist’s janitor the vaccine in the first round.
I went to Quest labs recently, never took off my mask. I went to get a CAT scan, only took off my mask in the machine (metal nosepiece). The second I was out, it was back on. I went to my eye doctor, never took my mask off the whole time he and the nurse examined me.
At the dentist, there’s no way you’re not directly exposed. And if you’re sick, you’re spraying virus all over everything, not just the dentist. So I’m okay with that.

That’s because they are.

I have to laugh at people like R133 who keep underestimating him, foolishly believing that he’s some sort of feeble old man. That’s why I want him to run again in 2024. Nothing is more advantageous than the gift of underestimation.

President Biden doubles vaccination goal to 200 million in his first 100 days.
|by Anonymous||reply 137||03/25/2021|
Let's do a little math. Given we have 330,000,000 people in the U..S. Divide that by 6 months and it means we have to vaccinate 55 million people per month. Seeing as how we're at 2 million it's going to take a massive amount of effort to get everyone vaccinated by September.

You are correct there, R142. The Democratic Party, chiefly President Obama, could’ve pushed Joe Biden to run in 2016 if they wanted but instead they were too concerned about his “gaffes.” Plus it was her turn.

R138 the number is much higher than 2 million. As of yesterday 27% of NYers weee vaccinated. That’s across the entire state including NYC and is 27% of total population, not just those eligible to get it right now.
I am feeling cautiously optimistic.

I'm liking him better than Obama so far: no big-business bailouts yet, no negotiating endlessly with the GOP, emergency relief funds to families, and this vaccine rollout is going pretty well.

He had already died by then. Like I said, he could’ve been convinced to run. Instead Obama weaponized Joe’s grief to keep him out of the race. He didn’t want Joe to run in 2020 either, but thankfully Joe said fuck it and ran anyway.

R138, NPR has a vaccine tracker, right now it's showing close to 51M vaccinated, far more than 2M.
You may have meant 2M per day, which is what we were at earlier this month, but now it's nearly 3M per day.
At this rate, everyone will be vaccinated in just under 100 days.

Yes, if you look at the New York Times tracker it shows 28% of the population with at least one dose. But you know what, I think that’s good enough quite frankly. I mean who’s getting one dose but not the other? Unless it’s the Johnson & Johnson shot, in which case one dose is all you need. And even with the Moderna shot, one dose is enough to save you from death should you get the coronavirus.

Just the man we needed for the times we are in. Thank the Lord we squeaked out a win in 2020. Couldn’t have done it without the House and Senate. Really was a make or break election.

I wish, R167. You can have the higher approval in the world, the only thing that matters is your approval percentage among the people who actually show up on Election Day. If Democrats fuck around and stay home next November, then the Republicans will take over the House.

R165 it was a close race in AZ, GA, and WI for Biden. The house majority is slim and the Senate is literally 50/50. We lost majorities in state houses, Republicans beat the odds compared to the polls, all things considered. It was a squeaker. When the national popular vote becomes the gauge for winners and losers of WH races then we can talk. But the individual state voting totaled were basically razor thin to somewhat thin.
A breeze could have tipped this race in Trump’s favor as it did in 2016.
