Dr. Anthony Fauci has responded to the reports claiming that the US has exhausted its supply of coronavirus vaccines.
During an interview with NBC's 'Meet The Press', Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, was asked if the calling for the release of the vaccine stockpile, and then finding out there is no stockpile a "misunderstanding". Dr. Fauci responded by saying there was a lot of caution in the rolling out of coronavirus vaccines because health officials wanted to make sure people who got the first dose received a second dose.
This tactic caused a lot of vaccines to be withheld for a time being, as health officials wanted to ensure that the supply of vaccines was consistent. Dr. Fauci says, "there was a lot of caution, so we wanted to make sure that everyone who got a first dose, got a second dose on time. So, when doses were released, an equal amount was kept back to make sure if there were any glitches in the supply flow that the people who got their first doses would clearly get their second."
Dr. Fauci continued and explained that, "after a couple of cycles, when it became clear that the cadence, of the flow of doses, was really going to be consistent and reliable, the decision was made that instead of just giving enough for the first dose and holding back for the second dose, that as soon as they got the doses available they would give it because now they would have confidence that the next amount that they would get, they would have enough to give everybody the second dose, and then some the first dose."
