The U.S. surpassed 350,000 reported deaths from #COVID19 last night.…

And Trump, Pence & Alex Azar are doing what about it today?

Where is the accountability for these deaths?

As of yesterday #CDC says 13,071,925 doses of #COVID19 #vaccines distributed but only 4,225,756 administered.…

Recall, Alex Azar pushed back against any additional funds for states to administer vaccines. #HHS was also slow to distribute #CARESAct funds.
Fauci on #ThisWeek: "There's no running away from the numbers."
"The deaths are real deaths."

Meanwhile, Trump remains in denial & continues to undermine #CDC's #publichealth experts.

#COVID19 #pandemic #vaccines
#NIH Fauci on #MeetThePress confirms what he & many other #publichealth experts have already said: Expect #COVID19 illnesses, hospitalizations & deaths to likely get worse in next couple of weeks.

#MTP #vaccines #MaskUp
Fauci on #MeetThePress on #COVID19 deaths: "Those are real numbers, real people & real deaths."

While Trump continues today to undermine and make unsubstantiated claims about #CDC on @Twitter.

#MTP #vaccines #MaskUp
Jerome Adams on #CNNsotu looking out for himself now, thinking about that next gig. 🙄

But all those times he's defended Trump & helped him downplay #COVID19 #pandemic ... & all those times Adams publicly mocked Americans who were wearing #masks in January, February, March ...
On @FoxNewsSunday, @KLoeffler reminds everyone that she's stood with Trump "100% of the time" on everything when asked why she didn't vote to override his veto of #NDAA.

#WarpSpeed's Slaoui #gaslighting again on #FaceTheNation about commitment he made Dec 2 to have 40M doses of #COVID19 #vaccines distributed in Dec - enough to vaccinate 20M people.

Allocated by Dec 31 isn't distributed.

He also claims today 17M distributed [#CDC said 13M]

Refresher history of #WarpSpeed.

#NIH & $MRNA & others well into #COVID19 #vaccines R&D long before Warp Speed launched in mid-May.

NIH already had public-private #vaccines, drugs & Dx partnerships ongoing, which White House essentially hijacked.… #FTN
No, 20M #COVID19 #vaccines doses haven't been made "available." Allocating isn't distributing.

Slaoui Dec. 2: ""We will be able to distribute enough vaccine to immunize 20 million people in the U.S. in December — that's 40 million doses."
Allocating is nothing more than an I owe you.

IOUs aren't payments in hand.

Reminder: Alex Azar didn't get a #COVID19 vaccine dose that was "allocated" to him Dec 22. He actually got the $MRNA shot itself.

But all other Americans still waiting?

#FaceTheNation #FTN #vaccines
Reminder: How many IOUs did Trump & Alex Azar write to Americans & never followed through with?

They promised 300M #COVID19 #vaccines doses by end of 2020, then cut it to 100M, then 40M & then 20M shots in arms & failed.

And ... never lowered #drugprices or replaced #Obamacare

.@DrNancyM_CDC on #COVID19 vaccinations: It's the early stages of the complicated task but a task we're up for.
These are new vaccines & new platforms.
Storage/handling/administering slightly complicated.…

#STATPlusConversations .@DrNancyM_CDC: Now that facilities/hospitals have experience with #COVID19 #vaccines & holidays over, expect pace of administration to go up massively in next couple of weeks.

Here's #WarpSpeed's Slaoui again #gaslighting.
No, it wasn't just 20M #COVID19 #vaccines doses "available" or "allocated."

Watch how Slaoui squirms when clips replayed of him, Azar, Trump all saying 20M vaccinated by end of 2020.

And then Slaoui goes on to lie again here.
#WarpSpeed's Slaoui Dec. 2: "We will be able to distribute enough vaccine to immunize 20 million people in the U.S. in December — that's 40 million doses."

They failed. They've not distributed those #COVID19 #vaccines doses.

It's Jan 5 & only 15.4M delivered/4.5 administered.
Does #WarpSpeed's Moncef Slaoui have any credibility left?

After Slaoui lies on national TV & then is confronted with clips of him stating he said 20M people vaccinated/immunized by end of 2020, he brushes it off with "So," & then lies again.

Here's Alex Azar #gaslighting on #COVID19 #vaccines & also appearing to shoot down Slaoui $MRNA half-dose idea.

Azar/Slaoui vowed 40M doses - enough to vaccinate 20M - by end of 2020. #Christmas was always part of their schedule. They failed but want to make excuse after excuse.
How much confidence should Americans have when Alex Azar says he's surprised there haven't been more glitches with #COVID19 vaccinations & brushes off everything that's gone wrong as expected? Really?… #vaccines $PFE $MRNA
The commitment was to have 40 million #COVID19 #vaccines doses - enough to vaccinate 20 million people -"distributed" by the end of 2020, not "available" as Azar is #gaslighting today & Slaoui/Perna tried to do same at last week's #WarpSpeed briefing. Azar failed on delivery.

Azar on @CBSThisMorning insisting it's important for him to get $MRNA #COVID19 vax today b/c he's a "leader."
Azar's wife tested positive & he's refusing to quarantine & he's been at photo ops/briefings.
Today, he'll be at #NIH, putting Fauci, @NIHDirector, others at risk
Is it leadership to refuse to quarantine, claim you're an "essential worker" to get around that quarantine, hold photo ops putting others potentially at risk, not to mention stepping in front of health care workers at #NIH to get $MRNA #COVID19 vaccine?
1 month left Azar at #HHS
Would it have shown better leadership to follow #CDC's advice, #stayhome & #quarantine after being exposed to #COVID19 & wait your turn to get $MRNA vaccine rather than stepping in front of critical health care workers?

Azar claimed he gets the shot today b/c he's a "leader."
