U.S. Urges States to Start Vaccines for a Larger Pool of People
Trump administration officials on Tuesday plan to strongly encourage states to expand access to Covid-19 vaccinations to anyone older than 65, regardless of underlying conditions, and anyone 16 and older with a pre-existing condition, according to two U.S. officials.
Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will send out a letter to governors making these recommendations on Tuesday.
The planned announcement, firstreported by Axios, come amid concerns the vaccine rollout has been slower than expected.
President Donald Trump’s team and experts working with President-elect Joe Biden have been frustrated that the vaccines haven’t been administered more widely.
