Trump blames states as he faces criticism for slow Covid vaccine rollout
President Donald Trump tried on Wednesday to deflect criticism for a slower-than-expected rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, saying the U.S. has distributed the lifesaving shots but states have to administer them. "The Federal Government has distributed the vaccines to the states," the president said in a tweet. The CDC acknowledged delays in its vaccine data from the states and jurisdictions that collect and report it to federal officials, among other factors. "A large difference between the number of doses distributed and the number of doses administered is expected at this point in the COVID vaccination program due to several factors," the agency said. Biden on Tuesday slammed Trump's effort to rollout the vaccine, saying that the Trump administration's "plan to distribute vaccines is falling behind, far behind."cnbc.com
