Biden says Trump failed at preparing the country for COVID-19 vaccine

"When I took office three weeks ago, America didn’t have a plan or enough supplies to vaccinate most of the country," President Biden tweeted.


President Joe Biden “accused” his predecessor for not doing a good job when it comes to preparing the American citizens for vaccination.

According to Reuters, Biden said during a news conference at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland that the coronavirus program he inherited from Trump was in “much worse shape” than he expected. Further, he explained how Trump failed to secure the doses needed, while Biden himself managed to purchase 100 million doses from Moderna and additional 100 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine in the first three weeks of taking the office.

At the same time, Biden acknowledged the hard work by the scientists who worked on the vaccine and thanked them for developing it with such an emergency. HuffPost reported the president saying: “While scientists did their job in discovering vaccines in record time, my predecessor — I’ll be very blunt about it — did not do his job in getting ready for the massive challenge of vaccinating hundreds of millions of Americans. He didn’t order enough vaccines. He didn’t mobilize enough people to administer the shots, and he didn’t set up federal vaccine centers where eligible people could go and get their shots.”

Currently, the U.S. has contracts for 600 million doses of vaccines which is enough for all the people living there.

Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said: “We appreciate the confidence that the U.S. government has demonstrated in our COVID-19 Vaccine.” Representatives of Pfizer also spoke of the contract, saying: “We will deliver 100 million doses by the end of March, a total of 200 million doses by the end of May, and the full 300 million doses by the end of July,” according to Reuters.


America’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci believes that almost every American will be able to register to get vaccinated by the end of April, 2021.

Hopefully, everything will go as smoothly as planned and this pandemic that turned our world and our lives upside down will soon be over.
