Biden Urges Patience With Vaccines, Says Trump Didn’t Do His Job

President Biden said on Thursday that the state of the vaccination program he inherited was in “much worse shape” than he had expected.

“We’re not going to have everything fixed for a while, but we’re going to fix it,” Biden said in remarks at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Biden said that Trump did not order enough vaccine and did not do enough to get people lined up to get vaccinated, and that his team had been misled about the supply of vaccines.

“While scientists did their job in discovering vaccines in record time, my predecessor – I’ll be very blunt about it – did not do his job in getting ready for the massive challenge of vaccinating hundreds of millions,” Biden said.
