Several logistical challenges have also been faced with vaccine rollout, as only 2.6 million people were vaccinated as of Wednesday.
An analysis by NBC News of previous data on Tuesday showed that it would take approximately ten years at the current pace to inoculate enough Americans to bring the pandemic under control.
US Distribution Gets Worst
The production and dissemination of vaccines have been the subject of widespread conspiracy theories and social media misinformation. However, it is uncertain how much influence this anti-vaccination campaign has had on overall public faith in the method. And now Dr. Fauci has been calling the government to have a new way in coronavirus vaccine rollout.
One hundred forty-five sites were scheduled to receive the vaccine on Monday, 425 on Tuesday, and 66 on Wednesday, according to Gen. Gustave F. Perna, the chief operating officer of the federal initiative to create a vaccine. Thus the following figures affect the decision for vaccine rollout earlier.

It is estimated that most of the first injections given on Monday will go to high-risk health care workers. In certain situations, this initial, small distribution does not have nearly sufficient doses to inoculate all physicians, nurses, security officers, receptionists, and other staff at risk every day of being exposed to the virus.
Since vaccines, including fevers and aches, can cause side effects, hospitals claim they will stagger vaccination schedules among employees.
Nursing home residents who have experienced a disproportionate share of deaths from Covid-19 are now prioritized and are scheduled to start receiving vaccines next week. But the vast majority of Americans will not be willing until spring or later to receive the vaccine. The refusal of some prioritized individuals also leads to vaccine rollout.

According to a data from the Pew Research Center, about 2 in 10 Americans are confident that they will not change their mind about rejecting the vaccine. And 62% said being among the first to receive the vaccine would be painful. Their refusal severely causes the decision for vaccine rollout.
"We're not going to make them" and continue, " but we wish we had a higher compliance," Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine stated. "And our message today is that the train may not be coming back for a while. " then continue, "We're going to make it available to everyone eventually, but this is the opportunity for you," added" and you should really think about getting it." His statement to those waiting and answering questions about the vaccine rollout and how it affects Ohio.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, said that some of the delays could be because the Covid-19 vaccine program is new and has never been tested before. Amid the holiday season, it was also hard to start something.
"Again, no excuses," he continued," but you can explain why you may not have gotten to the level you want. Now, not to make excuses, we should have done better. So, let me make that clear," he added. "We should have done better, but I think we should wait until we get into maybe the second, or the third week in January, to see if we can now catch up with the original pace that was set." End of quote.
On the other hand, Fauci rejected Trump's death claim and went on telling ABC's "This Week": "All you need to do now to go into the trenches, go into the hospitals too, go into those intensive care units and see what is happening their. Those are real numbers, real people, and real deaths."
He also expressed the hope of increasing vaccines but added that "we are not where we want to be, there's no doubt about that."
