The AHA today urged President-elect Biden to provide strong federal leadership on the COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration process, and it pledged to work with the incoming administration in expediting the administration of vaccines throughout the nation.
“This effort must be large and multifaceted, and it will require exceptional leadership and coordination to ensure none of the vaccine is wasted,” AHA said. “The most challenging task will be the work to keep the manufacturers, distributors, state and local officials, hospitals, pharmacies, other providers, schedulers, planners, site coordinators, data collectors, and others working as a team. We strongly believe the most important role for your administration will be to act as the quarterback for this massive undertaking.”
