The liberal media has spent the last four years criticizing former President Donald Trump for nearly everything, and this has not stopped since President Joe Biden took office on Wednesday. Just one day after Trump left office, CNN posted a click-bait story on its website, stating that Biden has inherited a nonexistent COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. The story claimed that the new Biden administration will need to start from scratch in order to reach its goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans during the first 100 days.
CNN claims that their sources are telling them that there is no official vaccine plan. The report also praised Biden for his current vaccination goal. However, the media company failed to praise Trump for averaging over 900,000 shots per day over the last week. In other words, under the Trump team, vaccinations have already been at 91.2% on their way to reaching Biden’s goal of one million per day. This means that the claims that the Biden team is starting from scratch are inherently false. Biden will only need to grow that average number by roughly 8.8% to reach his stated goal.
Status of Vaccines
The first vaccine to be approved in the U.S. was the Pfizer version. This vaccine was approved for emergency use authorization (EUA) on December 11. The approval for the Moderna vaccine was approved approximately one week later. Unlike the Pfizer vaccine, the Moderna version does not require storage in an advanced refrigeration system, making it more accessible.
In addition, Johnson & Johnson recently said that it was almost ready to present its efficacy and safety data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
