After nine months to prepare to administer a vaccine that the Northam Administration knew was coming, Virginians have been left out to dry by their Governor’s abysmal distribution efforts. The Commonwealth now ranks dead last according to the Becker’s Hospital Review for vaccine distribution and no one is to blame but Governor Northam and his team.
Doses distributed to state: 1,069,725
Doses administered: 451,668
Percentage of distributed vaccines that have been administered: 42.22
Due to the Governor’s lack of urgency and planning, Virginia’s vaccine distribution efficiency lags nearly 10% behind the nationwide average. In just a matter of days, Virginia has dropped from being in the bottom third of vaccine distribution, which was bad enough at the time, to dead last.
“Vaccine distribution is so abominable that even the liberal blog BlueVirginia has become critical of Governor Northam and his ‘Vaccine Czars.’ It’s high time the Northam Administration takes accountability for their complete ineptitude and gets vaccines to Virginians across the Commonwealth before we lose out on the opportunity for new doses.” – Kirk Cox for Governor Press Secretary Kristen Bennett
