We are now ten months into the US coronavirus pandemic, and have arrived at critical juncture. We have more deaths per day now than we had during the entire previous parcels of the problem, but we are also rolling out a number of highly effective vaccines that could bring us back to some semblance of normalcy.
Unfortunately, the rollout of these vaccines has been troublesome and cumbersome, leading to disappointment among those who’ve long been waiting for this salvation.
Utah Senator Mitt Romney has a plan to move this process along.
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee called for action after it emerged that 2.8 million Americans had received their first dose, far short of the 20 million the Trump administration promised by the end of 2020.
“That comprehensive vaccination plans have not been developed at the federal level and sent to the states as models is as incomprehensible as it is inexcusable,” Romney said in a statement.
Romney’s plan would be quite the endeavor.
Romney called for deploying veterinarians, emergency medical workers and medical students to deliver vaccinations and setting up sites such as school buildings that are largely empty because of the pandemic.
Mitt also suggested using traditional gatherings, like birthdays, to facilitate vaccination drives.
