Health Secretary Azar Resigns, Citing Capitol Attack

The revelation goes against what Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azarsaid earlier this week at an Operation Warp Speed briefing, that the administration would be "releasing the entire supply for order by states, rather than holding second doses in reserve".
After Azar talked about "tremendous success" with the rollout, Holt said, "You seem to be laying the blame at the feet of governors, but I'll remind you that it was the Trump administration that said 20 million doses by the end of 2020".
"It was a complete surprise", Freeman told CNN, adding, "To hear that this had been done for several weeks was actually shocking to us". "We've made that available to the states to order", Azar said.
HHS spokesman Michael Pratt confirmed the final reserve of second doses had been released to states for order over the weekend but did not address Azar's comments this week, saying only, "Operation Warp Speed has been monitoring manufacturing closely, and always meant to transition from holding second doses in reserve as manufacturing stabilizes and we gained confidence in the ability for a consistent flow of vaccines".
But according to a Washington Post article published Friday morning, federal officials backtracked and are now claiming that the reserve has already been exhausted, despite the fact that we have not seen an increase in our allocations and despite Pfizer's recent announcement that they currently have millions of doses of the vaccine on hand and are waiting on addresses from the Trump administration so they can deliver the vaccine to states. Gustave F. Perna, chief operating officer of Operation Warp Speed, spoke directly to officials in at least two of the jurisdictions receiving vaccine supply, explaining that allocations would not increase and that they did not have to broaden eligibility as they had previously been told, according to a health official who was not authorized to discuss the matter.
Like Inslee, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) tweeted Friday that she received "disturbing news" on Thursday about the absence of a federal stockpile.
"I'm shocked we were lied to and there is no national reserve", he said.

President-elect Joe Biden promised to help vaccinate more Americans against coronavirus by approving a wider range of professionals who can administer vaccines.
The confusion Azar and other federal officials brought about has outraged state governors tasked with distributing the federally-supplied vaccines as they are scrambling to find enough vials.
'This is a deception on a national scale.
Azar suggested in an interview with NBC News on Friday that the doses in question had already been allocated to the states.
"Operation Warp Speed has asked us to start shipping second doses only recently. As a result, we have on hand all the second doses of the previous shipments to the USA", a company spokeswoman said in a statement. "Until there is a more robust supply, we need to be clear with the public that opportunity to get the vaccine is limited".
