the government of America Will stop funding from and providing coronavirus vaccines January 2023 Due to paucity of funds, therefore US citizens have to pay for the vaccination out of their own pocket.
“We have always intended to transition to the commercial market and have been planning for this for some time,” said Don O’Connell, director of the US Department of Health’s Department of Strategic Preparedness and Response Administration.
“Unfortunately, the deadline to make the transition has accelerated over the past six months” lack of extra funds To support this work by Congress”, he lamented.
Since the start of the pandemic, the United States government and pharmaceutical companies have shied away from discussing the acquisition of vaccines. And drugs against the coronavirus will be sold commercially, as is the case with those vaccinating against the seasonal flu.
O’Connell has reported that the US government will also stop funding other treatments for the disease, such as paxlovid Supply from Pfizer is due to run out in mid-2023. According to a Bloomberg agency report, “funding is urgently needed for the next generation of COVID-19 vaccines, treatments and tests.”
The lack of agreement on the part of the United States Congress, which O’Connell noted earlier, is the first blockade of about $15,000 million by House Democrats if they came from state funds. Back then, it was Republicans in the Senate who refused to provide $10 billion because of objections to the Biden administration’s immigration policies.
United States has bought 171 million doses of vaccines Designed to better protect against Omicron and other types against coronavirus. Those booster shots are expected to be licensed for use later this week and offered to the public for free. While this may meet current demand, it will not be enough to vaccinate all adults in the long run.
