Biden’s Malignant Malignation June 12, 2021

Posted by geoff in News.

The Biden administration was (is) fond of criticizing Trump’s vaccine distribution efforts. Recalling the always-to-be-asterisked President’s March 2 press conference:

“When I came into office, the prior administration had contracted for not nearly enough vaccine to cover adults in America,” said Biden. “We rectified that.”

So let’s see just how badly Trump missed it. Remember, all of Trump’s initial contracts were issued in July 2020, with no real data on efficacy or safety. Here’s how they did:

Doses Administered
Doses Purchased
(July 2020)
Doses Purchased
(Dec 2020)
Option for Doses
(July 2020)
Pfizer167 million100 million100 million400 million (12/20)
Moderna128 million100 million100 million400 million (12/20)
J & J11.4 million100 million200 million
AstraZeneca 0100 million200 million
Novavax0100 million
Sanofi0100 million500 million

There are 259 million adults in America, and Trump ordered enough vaccine for 300 million people (400 million double doses and 100 million single doses). So Biden’s statement was ridiculous on its face.

But it gets worse. Three months later we still haven’t used all of the 400 million approved doses purchased by the Trump administration, and even if we had, there were options in place to easily order more.

Options which Biden took advantage of, without giving any credit to his predecessor.

Stupid lame WordPress table formatting stupidity is stupid.

I have read reports of vaccine lots that are due to expire before they can be administered

Makes you think that Biden pulled the trigger way, way too early. And without any reason.

We’re currently administering about 900K doses a day. That’ll taper off, of course, but even at that level, Trump had purchased enough vaccine for another 7 months (if you include J&J).

Windows Office Suite has added nothing useful since 2003. Seems like they just keep changing the menu and look so as to completely alienate their users.

Pretty much the same story as Windows itself.
