United States won't hold back second Covid vaccine doses: health secretary

13 Janvier, 2021, 18:48 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

Last week, President-elect Joseph Biden announced his administration planned to release all available doses of coronavirus vaccines to the states.

The Department of Health and Human Services is expected to announce sweeping changes Tuesday in vaccine rollout guidelines in an effort to boost the lagging number of vaccinations in the first month.

Azar said the government will stop holding back the required second doses and deliver them to state authorities.

Alex Azar told ABC News that the manufacture of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines was now "predictable enough that second doses are available for people from ongoing production".

Most states are still trying to get the vaccine to those in the first phases of the rollout: health care workers, those over age 75 and front-line essential workers, such as firefighters and police officers, as well as teachers, corrections officers, USA postal workers, public transit workers and those whose jobs are essential for the food supply.

Public health officials say the pace is picking up somewhat - nearly 9 million people have received their first dose according to CDC data - but experts say the pace needs to increase and that state and local jurisdictions need more resources and support to resolve the bottleneck.

Some states are running low on doses as well as manpower to handle them.

Dr. Frederick Davis, from Northwell Health, says time between doses is usually three or four weeks, and although he believes it is important to receive the second dose on time - he says getting the first dose out should be the priority.
