Because most Americans are skeptical about the safety and effectiveness of the chemical injections, the federal government's plan is to subsidize them with taxpayer dollars to make them more appealing to those who are otherwise planning to reject them.
The Department of Defense (DOD) and various federal health agencies have put together a "playbook" for states and local municipalities to follow in gradually rolling out Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines once they become available.
The Pentagon is also involved in the process, though reports indicate that "civilian health workers" will be tasked with administering the shots, first to the elderly and vulnerable, followed by everyone else.
According to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine campaign is "much larger in scope and complexity than seasonal influenza or other previous outbreak-related vaccination responses."
The plan is to have everyone get two doses of the vaccine 21 to 28 days apart. Whatever double-dose vaccine a person gets will have to be from the same manufacturer, though many will be unveiling their own double-dose vaccines in the coming months.
The process will also be prolonged as vaccine production and distribution takes time. Early supplies will go to essential employees and other vulnerable people, and latter supplies will be given to the rest of society in order of priority.
The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the National Academy of Medicine, and various other organizations are in charge of developing a priority schedule for the first phase. The second and third phases will progressively expand the vaccine's availability to the rest of the country.

States and cities all across the country have about one month left to submit their detailed plans for receiving and distributing Trump's Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines. Once completed, the administration will start teeing up the supply pipeline accordingly.
Thanks to Trump's earmarking of billions of dollars in taxpayer funding for the program, the hundreds of millions of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines slated for the American market will be "free of charge."
Once the fast-tracked clinical trials are completed, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to grant emergency use approval for Trump's vaccines, which will immediately begin to ship out for mass distribution as soon as they come off the production line.
In order for the vaccines to work, "experts" say that at least 70 percent of the "herd" must get vaccinated. This could prove a tough sell, however, as most Americans seem to be indicating that the vaccine is a no-go for them – no way, no how.
An Associated Press (AP) poll claims that only about one in five Americans is definitively not going to get vaccinated, while about 31 percent say they are "unsure" if the vaccine is right for them. People are especially concerned that vaccine corporations will bear no liability for injuries or deaths stemming from the jabs, and hospitals will likewise not be footing the bill for corresponding care.
"We are working closely with our state and local public health partners ... to ensure that Americans can receive the vaccine as soon as possible and vaccinate with confidence," stated Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar, a former Big Pharma executive appointed by Trump to his current role.
"Americans should know that the vaccine development process is being driven completely by science and data," he added, reassuring the public that Trump's warp speed vaccines will be 100 percent safe and effective.
