States With Quickest Vaccination Rollout Will Get More Vaccines

Description

Starting in two weeks, states with the speediest vaccine rollouts will be prioritized. The prioritization will be for additional doses, US officials announced Tuesday. The new system is meant to incentivize states to promptly record vaccinations. It will also prevent doses from sitting in freezers, says Business Insider. But it could also punish states that lack the funding or resources to accelerate vaccine administration. The strategy is set to take effect after President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

  • New York to offer $100 incentive to boost vaccination campaign

    New York, USA, Jul 28 (EFE).- New York City will offer a $100 incentive to people who get a Covid-19 vaccine starting Friday, mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday.“Starting on Friday, (…) at city run vaccination sites, when you get your first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, you will get a 100 dollar incentive,” de Blasio told a press conference.The measure aims to boost the pace of inoculation in the Big Apple, which has slowed in recent weeks, leaving many residents unvaccinated and vulnerable to the Delta variant.“Not only do you get the $100, you then qualify to be able to do everything else that is wonderful in this city, including the amazing concerts that are coming up,” the mayor added, urging vaccination was the only way forward.New York has previously offered numerous incentives to encourage people to get inoculated, ranging from a $5 million dollar prize to free hamburgers and fries.Some 8.3 million people in New York, 54.4 percent of the city’s population, have received the full course of the Covid-19 vaccine, official data shows.On Monday, the mayor announced the city would expand its Covid-19 mandate to require all municipal employees to get vaccinated or get tested on a weekly basis starting September.FOOTAGE BY ALBA VIGARAY.

  • 16 US States Break Heartbreaking Record For COVID-19 Hospitalizations

    16 states across the US broke a grim record on Friday, reporting their highest total of people hospitalized for COVID-19 since the pandemic began. Business Insider reports that since last fall, cases of COVID-19 have surged nationwide, particularly following the end of the holiday season. Alabama, Arkansas, Maryland, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia were hit hardest. Record hospitalizations were also seen this week in Arizona, California, Delaware, and Maine. The US Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for two COVID-19 vaccines at the end of 2020. However, a slow rollout means it will be many months before all who want a vaccination are immunized.

  • Fauci: The US Can Double Its Rate Of COVID-19 Vaccination Right Now

    White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci says the rate of vaccinations against COVID-19 should speed up soon. Business Insider reports Fauci told ABC News' Martha Raddatz on Sunday there's no reason why the US can't immunize 1 million people per day right now. If so, it would put the country on track to meet President-elect Joe Biden's goal of vaccinating 100 million people in his first 100 days in office. Fauci said that herd immunity in around 75% to 90% of the population might be achieved by the end of summer or early fall. According to Business Insider, he explained that his estimate could vary, based on how many people choose to get vaccinated.
