WNU Editor: As much as the Biden administration wants to decide on how this vaccine program will be administered, and even issuing warnings that many Americans may die because of the White House …. Biden Covid advisor says more people ‘will get infected and die’ the longer Trump delays transition (CNBC). It looks like the decision has already been made without them.
On a side note. I remember at the beginning of the pandemic all the specialists and experts in developing vaccines were saying that it would take a year and a half or more to develop a coronavirus vaccine, and even longer to manufacture and administer one. That there was also a very good chance that one may not even be developed.
It looks like they were wrong.
Will anyone now call this the Trump vaccine?
