The United States is the first country in the world to approve the emergency use of a new coronavirus vaccine. Pfizer and Moderna's mRNA vaccines have been approved successively,The United States has also announced an ambitious vaccination target, with a plan to vaccinate 20 million people by the end of the year.
However, as the last day of 2020 passes, the progress of vaccination program in the United States is actually slow. According to the data of the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, as of December 30, local time, there is only one year left2.8 million AmericansThe first dose of vaccine was given.
It is reported that novel coronavirus pneumonia is slow in the United States and is not timely. The new US vaccine allocation process is far behind the original plan, triggering fears that the United States will be able to control the new crown pneumonia rapidly.
Florida government recently said that up to now, the state has only received less than a quarter of the new crown vaccine, and many elderly people stay up late to wait outside for vaccination.
Federal officials said they didn't know why the vaccination plan was not as good as expected, but state health officials and hospitals said there were two main reasons,The first is the limited ability of local officials and hospitals in the United States to deal with many of the complex details of the final stages of vaccine distributionFor example, the schedule and staffing, many states have to postpone the dose of vaccine to sanatoriums and other institutions due to insufficient resources or manpower.
According to the sources, only 8% of the doses have been distributed in the United States, and 2 million doses have not yet been distributed.
secondly,Americans don't fully trust vaccines, which slows down the pace of vaccinationThe governor of Ohio has previously said that 60% of sanatorium workers in the state refuse to be vaccinated, and there are also hospital workers in Florida who refuse to be vaccinated for safety reasons.
