20 million were supposed to be vaccinated by now, 1.7 million have while 70 million doses of vaccine, available for weeks, sits and sits.
Of those vaccinated, nearly one third are “line cutters” who should be prosecuted.
US military, including Pentagon, got first doses…up to 500,000 in secret “line cutting” ploy
Military hit “low risk” vaccination phase well before Christmas, up to a year before the general public
VT: Trump’s current rate of vaccinations will take 10 years before 80% of Americans receive their first shot. Trump’s pledge was 20 million by the end of the year but figures claiming only 10 percent of that are considered “fudged.”
Even the military is vaccinating young and healthy before aged vets or exposed medical personnel.
Then there are the crooks and grifters…
Hospital workers in New York are cutting lines and starting to "turn against each other" to get the coronavirus vaccine, inciting a backlash among staff. https://t.co/TiXQ16kacd

Worse still, big pharma and medical corps have given “front of the line” privileges to their “friends and family.” Ask any doctor or nurse…and we have. They are infuriated to see accounting staff and insurance company underwriters getting vaccinated before first responders. New York is the first state to look into this.
Howard Zucker, the state’s health commissioner, announced the investigation on Saturday, stating a network of clinics “may have fraudulently obtained covid-19 vaccine, transferred it to facilities in other parts of the state in violation of state guidelines and diverted it to members of the public,” according to the New York Times.
“Anyone found to have knowingly participated in this scheme will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” Zucker said.
The CDC need to look at some one else to run the Vaccine delivery. It a total failure with estimated delivery time of 5 years now.

By December 4, 2020, the US had 50 million doses of COVID vaccine in inventory. Over 96 percent are still in inventory and we produced another 20 million, “still in inventory.”

We have 4 million nurses and 330,000 pharmacists who can give the shots and the ability to deliver fresh Pacific Ocean seafood to Trump’s table in hours.
However, the entire US military can’t deliver a 20 foot container of vaccines every 4 days. We secretly have only one plane and it seems to be somewhere being washed or getting an oil change.

Were Trump to remain in office, the rollout wouldn’t hit levels planned and failed for December 2020 until December 2021.
Our 94 year old neighbors have yet to be vaccinated. Yet here w are vaccinating the elites of DC.

Vaccinations are going full speed in Washington with anti-mask denialists getting vaccinated, folks like Rubio and Graham along with DC staffers and their families while local hospital personnel are still waiting.
And the LTCF residents continue to be ignored so the upscale elites can be vaccinated. The caste system is alive and well in Illinois

Not a single veteran has been vaccinated in a care home, the group with the highest casualty rate for COVID. No dates have been announced and veterans have been moved down the list behind millions of workers at senior living facilities.
There is no way to regulate this group which will be a ploy to give “front of the line” privileges for GOP elites who will be “cutting the queue” as usual.
Rubio is a pretender, a fake IMHO. He also jumped the line to get vaccinated before 99.999999% of USA citizens. And talks about others being elite. What a hypocrite. Period

WE know that 50 million doses are in US inventory now but only 4% have been administered.
“We are below where we want to be,” Fauci says about number of administered Covid vaccines
From CNN’s Naomi Thomas
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN’s Jim Sciutto Tuesday that the US is “certainly not at the numbers that we wanted to be at the end of December,” when it comes to the number of Covid-19 vaccines administered.

“I believe that as we get into January, we are going to see an increase in the momentum which…I hope allows us to catch up to the projected pace,” Dr. Anthony Fauci says about the lower-than-projected vaccination numbers in the US. https://t.co/xB0HFzoxGX pic.twitter.com/ORvrz51K8f

The administration had said that the goal was for 20 million people to be vaccinated by the end of the year. As of Monday morning, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Covid Data Tracker reported just over two million people receiving their first dose.
At the current rate it will take 10 years to reach the goal of 80% vaccinations in the US. Yet another failure of @realDonaldTrump.

“Even if you undercount, two million as an undercount, how much undercount could it be,” Fauci said. “So, we are below where we want to be.”
So it will take at least 264 weeks (5 years) to vaccinate 264 million (80% of 330 million) at rate of 1 million vaccinations a week…and that doesn't include the 2nd required vaccination…

Fauci praised Army Gen. Gustave Perna, chief operating officer of Operation Warp Speed, for publicly apologizing for some glitches that have gotten in the way.
“I believe that as we get into January, we are going to see an increase in the momentum,” Fauci said, which “I hope allows us to catch up to the projected pace that we had spoken about a month or two ago when we were talking about the planned rollout of the vaccinations.”
