Whistleblower Bright: Vaccine distribution to become problem without plans

Vaccine distribution can become issue without plans, Whistleblower Dr Rick Bright told the Congress subcommittee on Health on Thursday. He added his concerns are serious since issues already exist with supply of personal protective equipment and drugs like remdesivir.

Bright, who was ousted from the position of director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, stated that over 100 approaches are being taken to make a new vaccine, but finding a vaccine won't be enough if it isn't distributed properly. Additionally, distribution of vaccine ingredients and glass vials need to be taken into account, he said. The official also warned the government needs to start making plans because it will be impossible for only one company to produce the virus.
