“We previously misstated that the covid vaccines were not available in January 2021,” the White House team said in a tweet. “We should have instead said they were not widely available.”
But even this backtrack was misleading.
By the time Biden took office, vaccine distribution had long been underway, and over 16.5 million doses had already been given out. It is inaccurate to claim that when Biden arrived there weren’t enough COVID vaccines available to the general public. Before Biden even took office, the Trump White House had ordered at least 400 million doses from Moderna and Pfizer—enough vaccines to immunize 77% of the country’s population—before Biden took office.
For comparison, over 66% of people in the world have already completed their full initial dosage, according to Our World in Data.
The COVID controversy has been a long-standing issue for Joe Biden. As I’ve previously stated, the Biden White House has been relentless in its efforts to rewrite history when it comes to coronavirus and the COVID vaccination. The White House’s attempt to backtrack on its previous fraud included yet another lie, which I fully expected from these individuals.
Covid-19 has killed over 400,000 Americans and Biden’s administration is not helping by lying. It is hard to have faith in them when they can’t even tell the truth about something as simple as the vaccine.
I hope that this administration can get its act together and start being truthful with the American people, but I’m not holding my breath.
