Coronavirus: Biden says Trump administration’s vaccine rollout “falling way behind”

Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Biden says Trump administration’s vaccine rollout “falling way behind”” – below is their description.

U.S. president-elect Joe Biden criticized the Trump administration Tuesday over the pace of distributing COVID-19 vaccines, saying the country is “falling far behind” the rest of the world.

Biden said “it’s gonna take years, not months, to vaccinate the American people” at the current pace.

He vowed to ramp up the current speed of vaccinations five to six times, to 1 million shots a day, but acknowledged it “will still take months to have the majority of Americans vaccinated.”

The president-elect, who takes office Jan. 20, said he has directed his team to prepare a “much more aggressive effort to get things back on track.”

“I’m going to move heaven and earth to get us going in the right direction,” Biden said.
