Former CDC chief: Think outside the box to offer COVID vaccines where they're needed most

Dr. Tom Frieden

President Joe Biden’s announcement this month that all American adults will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine by Monday marks the start of the next phase of the vaccination campaign that will end the epidemic in the United States. No more phased eligibility and having to figure out whether you have a qualifying medical condition or occupation. No more disparity in eligibility among states and even within states. Get in line and get your shot.

If only it were that simple.

We’ve done a great job getting shots into arms —  about 181 million doses given since Biden was sworn in Jan. 20, and we’re now administering about 3 million shots a day. We’re on track to beat his goal of 200 million shots well before April 30, his 100th day in office.
