Biden Ramps Up Vaccine Distribution After Trump Botched The Rollout
February 8, 2021
Trump botched the vaccine rollout and left the Biden administration to fix his chaotic and failed distribution effort. Despite Trump’s failures, President Biden is delivering for the American people and continues to ramp up vaccine production and distribution.
The Trump administration botched its vaccine rollout, and the chaos made it more difficult for the Biden administration to distribute vaccines.

Vanity Fair: “The bureaucratic brinkmanship of the dueling meetings would be laughable if the stakes weren’t so high. Three weeks after the first vaccines rolled out of warehouses, the distribution effort was failing to live up to the Trump administration’s extravagant promises. Too few people were getting the shots, and states were ending each day with unadministered doses that had to be discarded, owing to the onerous refrigeration requirements.”
President Biden continues to take essential steps to ramp up vaccine production and distribution, despite Trump’s failures.
