Biden administration to redistribute unordered COVID-19 shots, shifting to areas with greater demand – Colorado Springs, Colorado

The Washington-Biden administration has informed the states that some states will begin to change the way they allocate COVID-19 vaccination in response to the declining demand.

Changes from strict population allocation are occurring as demand for coronavirus vaccines declines nationwide and some or all of the weekly dose allocations are denied in some states.

The federal government will shift some of these doses to high-demand areas to speed up shots in these areas.

Weekly quotas are still determined by the adult population, but the state was allowed to carry over unordered doses weekly in case they were needed in the coming weeks. Some states leave a significant number of chaotic doses as demand declines.

Arkansas officials rejected the entire weekly share last week, according to the Washington Post.

The White House now seems to put weekly unordered doses into a sort of federal venue where the state can ask for more depending on the local demand for vaccination.
