That did not take long: U.S. should consider donating vaccines to other countries to combat China’s global influence

Wow, even a brain injured idiot suggested this would happen:

“Countries like India and China are already using the coronavirus vaccine as a diplomatic tool; both are giving away doses to other nations in an effort to expand their global influence. National security experts said the United States should consider doing the same.”

“Vaccine diplomacy” is a new word pair, adding to “vaccine privilege” and “vaccine envy”.

For now, the US says it will not donate doses until it has a “sufficient supply” or at least while our vaccine program is expanding.

Best guess: With daily new cases in sharp decline, and the vaccine program likely no longer expanding in late spring,  the “experts” will declare the U.S. has “sufficient supply” and will donate 5% by mid-year, and at least another 5-10% in 2H 2021. Watch for them to say we have reached a state of “herd immunity”, ignoring their prior statements we needed to have 85% vaccinated.
