1.6 million vaccinations every day through end of February?

If this is true, this means inoculating about 1.6 million people every day, 7 days per week, starting today.

Head if Operation Warp Speed, Dr. Moncef Slaoui, said on Monday that 20 million Americans are expected to be immunized by the end of the year. 100 million doses are expected to be injected by the end of February 2021

As I wrote in the past, that schedule is possible – but where is the evidence we are ramped up to that?


As CNBC notes, the U.S. government is currently planning on holding back on doses to ensure that people get the second dose they need. Slaoui stated that the government may stop holding back doses January or February once they see “things are rolling perfectly.”

Would feel better about this if the government would publish specific details – who is shipping vaccines? How many? By when?
