He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home.

    Presumably the manufactures are, and have been, running at capacity.

    For the gov to “create” more vaccine means one or more of…
    1) Various unsafe and/or criminal ways are being employed (seriously unlikely).
    2) We’re taking it from vaccine that would have been sent to other countries, perhaps the 3rd world (maybe).
    3) The manufacturers have increased capacity (likely but also likely planned long ago).

    This really sounds like happy spin on things already in the pipeline. I suppose it’s natural for one administration to try to claim credit for things the previous one did… but it’s interesting how the media has just fallen into line with this.

    There was a lot of reporting on the “disarray” that the Trump administration left the vaccination program in. Now things are fixed… almost like there never was a serious problem.

    The below website shows a graph of the US’s vaccinations in terms of percentage of the population vaccinated. I see no “disarray”. I see no “fix”. I expect to see no massive bump upwards. We’re vaccinating about 2% of our population a week, that’s a little less than a million a day. We’re trending upwards so we should expect to do more than that eventually.
