Officials in multiple states say they were alerted late Wednesday that their second shipments of Pfizer’s vaccine had been drastically cut, sparking widespread confusion and conflicting statements from both Pfizer and federal officials about who is at fault, with the Trump Administration claiming Pfizer is having production difficulties, and Pfizer countering that they are having no production issues at all - and have many millions of doses immediately available, above and beyond what is already being distributed.
Of course, before we pass judgment here, we all know that there are always two sides to every story. That said, you can be pretty damn sure that the Trump side - will consist primarily of complete nonsense, sprinkled on top of a heaping mound of total and utter bull sh*t.
Just consider what a funny world we’re living in these days. A world where a damn pharmaceutical giant is now perhaps a 1000 times more believable than our own federal government. Oh well, not to worry, I’m sure Trump will have Jared Kushner sort it all out for us in due time.
But gee, it’s still hard to imagine what could have happened here? I mean, Pfizer has plenty of vaccine on hand, transportation has been arranged, and yet someone is telling them not to ship. I think the Trump Administration even has a name for this operation. I believe it’s called “Operation What Speed?”
Hey, I bet I know what’s going on. Trump’s probably just holding things up a tad, until Pfizer agrees to label all those vaccine vials as the “Trump Vaccine.” Seems like a reasonable enough demand. I mean, it isn’t like there are lots of lives are at risk here, or anything urgent like that.
I had heard that. Little coverage so far - it appears to be getting out and people are seeing it occurring. The Governor of Illinois sent out a request for info. That made me wonder if the slow movement was aimed at democratic states, but Indiana has a similar problem as well. Pfizer says it has plenty of vaccine and gets its shipping orders from the FEDS.
