Romney, who represents Utah, said in a statement on Friday that those comprehensive vaccination plans have not been developed at the federal level and have been sent to the states because the models are not as understandable as they represent Utah, Romney said in a statement on Friday.
Romney said plans to rely on hospitals and pharmacies that have already become overcrowded are “unrealistic”.
Romney’s statement came as the federal government’s Operation Operation Speed promised to provide 20 million doses before January 1. However, the U.S. Preliminary data for the week for disease control and prevention by the centers show that only more than 12.4 million doses have been distributed, and only 2.79 million have been administered.
“The rapid development of the Covid-19 vaccine is a tribute to NIH, the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry professionals. But unlike the development of vaccines, the vaccination process itself is lagging behind. It was unrealistic to assume that Can take a huge vaccination program.
“So it is claimed that CVS and Walgreens will save the day: they don’t have enough staff to inoculate millions of Americans. Neither are they equipped to deal with the rare but serious reactions that may come. Doc office fees are good,” Romney said. That said, but the rate of patient throughput in the offices is potentially slow.
He added, “When something isn’t working, you need to accept reality and develop a plan – especially when thousands of lives are at stake.”
Romney appealed to leaders to “call people who have carried out extensive vaccination programs elsewhere or in the past” for guidance and suggested that retired medical staff and others set up vaccination sites in schools as a possible solution.
He said that despite the fact that this phase of the scheme targets the easiest people to vaccinate the program is “sadly behind”.
“Now urgent action can help catch us,” Romney said.
