MORE on Friday complained that his administration hasn’t been given enough credit on coronavirus vaccines, a day after vaccinated Americans were advised they can go without masks in most settings – a major milestone in the fight against the pandemic.
Trump claimed in a statement that his administration through Operation Warp Speed came up with the vaccines “years ahead of schedule” but said it was “incredible” that “our names are not even mentioned in what everybody is calling the modern day miracle of the vaccines.”
“Without the vaccines, this world would have been in for another 1917 Spanish Flu, where up to 100 million people died,” Trump said. “Because of the vaccines we pushed and developed in record time, nothing like that will be even close to happening. Just a mention please! The Biden Administration had zero to do with it. All they did was continue our plan of distribution, which was working well right from the beginning!”

The U.S. was administering about 1 million American adults each day by the time that Biden took office, and the pace significantly ramped up from there.
The Biden administration built on the Trump administration’s vaccination program, ordering more vaccine doses, increasing the number of vaccination locations and vaccinators and invoking the Defense Production Act in order to ramp up production. After the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was approved by the FDA in late February, the Biden administration announced a partnership between Johnson & Johnson and competitor Merck to increase doses.
