He refused to give even a modicum of credit to Trump. Biden and his team pretended as though they'd walked into a mess, and any positive development that might come of the Covid vaccine would be due to Joe Biden's visionary and courageous leadership. https://t.co/jZouRcmYaL— Larry O'Connor (@LarryOConnor) September 22, 2021
The vaccine rollout would be the first major triumph of the Biden presidency. It was almost as though if Biden only accomplished this one task, his presidency would already be a success. Hell, they were going to build statues of Biden over this. https://t.co/jZouRcmYaL— Larry O'Connor (@LarryOConnor) September 22, 2021
“Boosters for the wealthy and scraps for everyone else will neither get us out of this pandemic nor prepare us for the next one.”— Dr. Angela Rasmussen (@angie_rasmussen) September 22, 2021
A pandemic by definition is a global crisis. It won’t end until we vaccinate the world.
Great piece by @JInterlandi. https://t.co/dOZJrmskfs
'We’ll need more than meetings and donations. We’ll need an entirely new global vaccination apparatus.' Great piece on the failure of the market to deal with vaccinating the world. We need planning & coordination, not patents & profits #PeoplesVaccine https://t.co/NRJs4pt4P1— Nick Dearden (@nickdearden75) September 22, 2021
"The world is at war with Covid. Covid is winning."— Steve Milloy (@JunkScience) September 22, 2021
Our inept/corrupt public health bureaucracy has failed us.
We should have let the virus run its course to achieve herd immunity.
Now we are fighting a pandemic of tyrannical government.https://t.co/vmrLZbPla0
"The People’s Vaccine Alliance estimated in June that at the current pace, it would take 57y for low-income countries to vaccinate their entire populations.— Céline Gounder, MD, ScM, FIDSA (@celinegounder) September 22, 2021
High-income countries will do so within next 6 months (hesitancy notwithstanding)."https://t.co/w0G8iQhBQC @JInterlandi
Fantastic piece by Janeen Interlandi summarizing the dismal roll out of vaccines. We were supposed to get 2b doses to poor countries this year through COVAX. But only 270m so far. We won't be safe until rich countries treat this with 'warp speed' urgency https://t.co/ehIa1MdpQF— Thomas Hale (@thomasnhale) September 22, 2021

This is big news for emergency medicine doctors like myself -- a Pfizer booster shot would provide a lot of much needed reassurance for physically and emotionally exhausted providers wondering if we will ever feel relatively safe at work ever againhttps://t.co/rMnIDdv3Xm— DoctorJohn ?

Great piece by @JInterlandi calling vaccine donations "a flimsy fix for such rampant inequity" and emphasizing how "electricity for cold storage, trained health workers for vaccine administration & campaigns to combat hesitancy all need to be bolstered." https://t.co/bWqFzN4gGO— Nithya Ramanathan (@NithyaRamanath1) September 22, 2021
"[Pharma] says `We’ll hold on to the technology, but we promise we’ll make sure you get what you need.’ Africa has heard this a million times before, and they’re sick of it, because they know it never works out that way.”@andreyzarur ??? in @JInterlandihttps://t.co/BVqs4iGkmL— Zoë McLaren, PhD (@ZoeMcLaren) September 22, 2021
