Washington Post: U.S. communities want to share unused vaccines with Mexico, but the White House won’t let them

Washington Post: U.S. communities want to share unused vaccines with Mexico, but the White House won’t let them. “State and local officials across the country have run into the same problem, as the Biden administration has prevented efforts to donate leftover vaccines to India and other countries suffering from acute outbreaks. The reason, White House officials say, is that vaccines in the United States are the property of the federal government, not the cities or states in which they are distributed. That means the federal government is liable for their use, and donation efforts must be run out of Washington. The White House runs its own program to donate vaccines, usually through the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development.”
