US authorities agree with Moderna and Pfizer to supply additional vaccines

By the end of July, at least another 300 million doses of vaccines will be delivered to the United States, President Joe Biden promised

The Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Defense have signed contracts with leading coronavirus vaccine companies – Moderna and Pfizer – to supply another 200 million doses of vaccines to the country. President Joe Biden said this on Thursday during his visit to the headquarters of the National Institutes of Health in the suburbs of Washington, according to Reuters..

Biden criticized the vaccination program, which was developed by the previous administration under the leadership of Donald Trump, and urged US residents to “be patient” and wait for the Biden administration to correct the shortcomings made in the development of the program.

Trump “did not do his job” in preparation for vaccinating Americans, Biden said. Serious miscalculations were made by the previous administration – in particular, not enough doses were ordered to vaccinate the majority of US residents, the president said..

“We won’t be able to fix everything anytime soon, but we will fix everything,” Biden said. The president said his administration has already signed contracts for 100 million doses of Moderna vaccine and another 100 million doses of Pfizer vaccine. By the end of July, another 300 million doses of vaccines will be delivered to the United States, the president promised, and in total both companies will supply 600 million doses to the United States – enough to vaccinate 300 million people..
