Our President Joe Biden has a detailed plan to combat COVID-19.
Per his proposal, he wants to double the national investment in vaccinations to $20 billion.
He believes creating more vaccination sites and launching a public health task force will help to stop the spread of the virus.
He is using the Defense Production Act to push his new task into effect.
With COVID-19 deaths rising to 4,000 per day, Biden wants to relieve the responsibility of the states to allocate distribution. Instead, he will use federal resources and plans to make the process quicker and more effective.
In Donald Trump’s administration, there were significant problems with shortage of supplies, lack of funding, vaccination distribution and resistance from healthcare workers.
All of which slowed the process.
It is estimated about 480 million doses need to be administered to achieve immunity of the virus in the U.S.
