Biden to Order FEMA and Nationwide Guard to Set Up ‘1000’s’ of Neighborhood COVID Vaccine Clinics

Once sworn in as President of the Office, Joe Biden will order FEMA and the National Guard to set up thousands of community coronavirus vaccination clinics across the country. In a speech on Friday afternoon, President-elect Biden announced that his administration would turn easily accessible areas, including schools and gyms, into these vaccination centers and promised to make the sites “fair”. He also promised mobile vaccination centers.

As part of its plan to “get COVID-19 vaccinations up and running quickly,” the Biden government will also make the vaccine available at local pharmacies across the country, reports CNBC.

Biden also said his administration will be reaching out to a variety of clinical and non-clinical professionals, including retired health care workers, to vaccinate more Americans.

“Here’s the deal: the more people we vaccinate, the faster we do it, the sooner we can save lives and leave this pandemic behind and return to our lives and our loved ones,” Biden said on Thursday. “We’re not going to come out overnight and we can’t do it as a separate nation.”

Biden has a big goal for his first 100 days: vaccinated 100 million Americans.

Biden says that although “the launch of the vaccine in the US has been a dismal failure so far,” he is confident the country can dispense 100 million doses in 100 days

But he might have more than just logistical challenges vaccinating Americans.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown on Friday berated President Donald Trump and his administration for promising to distribute the federal vaccine supply in full if there was none to be released.

“This is a national deception. Oregon’s seniors, teachers and all of us had to rely on the promise that Oregon’s share of the federal reserve of vaccines would be given to us, “said Governor Brown, adding,” There is no federal reserve of cans. “

On Friday, Biden pledged to apply the Defense Production Act to ensure more vaccines can be manufactured quickly.
