Dr. Anthony Fauci, the main epidemiologist in the United States, was more optimistic about the vaccination process in the country, predicting that in the coming days they will be administered a million daily vaccinations.

The expert told the AP agency that he is sure that the obstacles have been resolved after health authorities were criticized for not achieving the goal of 20 million vaccines before the end of 2020.

“Every time you start a great program, there are always flaws. I think the flaws have been fixed, ”Fauci told AP.

Vaccination has accelerated in recent years and the country is already approaching 5 million inoculations.

“Once I get some momentum [el programa de vacunación]I think we can achieve 1 million a day or even more, “said Fauci, who added that President-elect Joe Biden’s goal of 100 million vaccinations in 100 days is” a realistic, important, and achievable goal. “

Fauci believes that the country will have herd immunity for early fall. The United States is experiencing the worst months of the pandemic and reached 20.6 million cases. Some 345,000 have died from COVID-19.
