Van Hollen Statement on Biden’s New Steps to Boost Vaccine Supply, Distribution

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding the new steps announced yesterday by President Biden to boost vaccine supply, distribution, and transparency. 

“To overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, we must rapidly expand our vaccination efforts across Maryland and the country. Doing so requires an all-hands-on-deck approach, including a coordinated strategy at the federal level to secure more doses of the vaccines and ensure their prompt deployment to the states. As I continue to urge Maryland officials to lay out a comprehensive and transparent plan to tackle the current distribution challenges and disparities in access in the state, I’m encouraged to see the Biden Administration take an important step forward on a strategy to procure more vaccines and share more information with the public on these efforts.”
