Dr. Del Rio: We Need to Aim for 2.5M to 3M Covid Vaccinations a Day
DEL RIO: "I think it’s going to be hard, but I think it’s also doable. And as we say, we must do it. Because the only way we can start decreasing mortality and decreasing hospitalizations, John, is really by vaccinating people. It’s not going to be immediate, as you say, but if we don’t vaccinate the number of people that President-Elect Biden is suggesting, we are not going to get there. And I would say even a million day, which is what he is proposing, is low. We need to shoot for higher goals. We need to shoot for 2.5 to 3 million people a day. And I know it is going to be hard, but with resources and with ingenuity, we'll be able to do it."
