The chief infectious disease expert in the United States considered that the goal set by the new US president to vaccinate 100 million people during the first 100 days of his term is applicable.
“The matter is completely applicable … there is no doubt at all … we can achieve this,” said Anthony Fauci, who will retain his position as chief advisor to the presidency to confront Corona.
The pace of vaccination in the United States is being criticized for its slowness, despite the development, testing and approval of two vaccines by health authorities in a record period of time.
According to the Federal Public Health Agency in the United States, 31.1 million doses of the vaccine have been delivered and less than 40% (12.2 million) have been used.
And some states, including New York, have warned that they may face a shortage of doses next week, due to not receiving sufficient quantities of them, with the coordination of the federal government, after speeding up its vaccination campaign.
