WH Promised 100 Million Vaccine Doses By Today

Mediaite reports:

A promise made several weeks ago White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is making the rounds — as President Donald Trump’s administration has now failed to hit a target date for a coronavirus vaccine.

On Sept. 17, Meadows told reporters outside the White House that the plan was for 100 million doses of a vaccine would be “ready to go” by Oct. 31. “In terms of the number of vials, what we’re shooting for is to try to make sure that we have 100 million doses in that first tranche,” Meadows said.

He added, “100 million doses is one-third of the population. That’s pretty wide distribution, when you look at that, and that’s October … we believe that we could get the vast majority of those at risk with a distribution model that would be available at the end of October.”
