Fauci: There's No ‘Organized Approach' to Tracking COVID Vaccine
GettyThe Biden administration is desperate to ramp up the distribution of COVID-19 vaccine. But officials working with the White House's coronavirus task force are running into a major problem: the data they need to track the delivery of doses is incomplete, often late, and sometimes even contradictory.

Without a reliable accounting system, the administration is essentially flying blind, instead relying on hundreds of local anecdotes about issues with supply and low vaccination rates, according to three officials working with the White House's COVID-19 task force. That makes it much more difficult to piece together a cohesive picture of a national problem with life-or-death consequences. Some vaccine vials lost in the system could hold as many as six or seven people doses. And there are millions of doses unaccounted for, officials say.

"Right now, what we have is anecdotal stories, stories of people who are online and can't get it because there's not enough vaccine, places where you have vaccine in the refrigerator but you don't have enough people to administer it. We need to get an organized approach to find out exactly what is going on at the local level and try and fix it," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Biden's chief medical officer, in an interview with The Daily Beast.
