  • Speaking near his home in Wilmington, Delaware, on Friday, Biden said he would invoke the Defense Production Act to ramp up production of equipment needed for vaccine rollout, refrigeration and storage.

  • Our plan is as clear as it is bold.

  • S health secretary has since acknowledged does not exist.

  • Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar had said on Tuesday that the administration would release millions of doses it had been holding in reserve for booster shots in order to help spur a sluggish rollout off first doses to those most in need of the vaccine, but on Fridays are suggested in an interview with NBC that the doses in question had already been allocated to the states.
