White House on U.S. vaccine supply: America first

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 13 Feb, 2021
  • White House on U.S. vaccine supply: America first

The White House is making no apologies for prioritizing Americans in its effort to distribute COVID-19 vaccines.

Press secretary Jen Psaki says President Joe Biden's focus is on ensuring that the American people get vaccinated.

That's despite the challenges faced by other countries, including Canada, in procuring vaccine doses from outside the United States.

Psaki says Biden understands that widespread vaccination around the world is vital to getting the pandemic under control.

But she also says U.S. vaccine manufacturing capacity will be aimed primarily at domestic efforts.

The president has promised to administer 100 million shots before the end of his first 100 days in the White House.
