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.
The administration was sticking to strict population allocation, but some states refused some or all of the weekly dose allocations due to the nationwide decline in demand for coronavirus vaccines.
Arkansas officials rejected the entire weekly share last week, according to the report. The Washington Post.
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 have left significant numbers of chaotic doses in the last few weeks as demand declined.
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.
President Joe Biden will provide the latest information on Tuesday at 2:30 pm EST.
