‘We are definitely not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in distribution’ Fauci said January 21
The White House Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci counterattacked his previous rejection claims on Tuesday that the Beiden administration was “starting from scratch” with the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine.
On Sunday, Vice President Kamala Harris revived the claim during an interview with Axios.
