Despite the challenges of coordinating massive vaccinations in a timely manner, some health officials are confident that President-elect Joe Biden will be able to deliver on his promise to inoculate 100 million Americans during his first 100 days in office.
“This is what the president-elect has promised. It will be a hefty lift, but we have enough to do that,” his Centers for Disease Control and Prevention pick said yesterday.

Still, officials believe that, somehow, Biden’s plan will speed that process up.
