Just because Donald Trump is gone from the White House does not mean that his “Operation Warp Speed” mass vaccination program for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has come to an end.
According to reports, door-to-door administration of China virus jabs by the government is now well underway in Seattle, where local fire department paramedics equipped with syringes are going around paying area residents a visit.
Right now, the main targets are “residents of adult family homes throughout the city.” Eventually, this will expand to everyone in the city, at least if Mayor Jenny Durkan has anything to say about it.
“We have to get these shots out of refrigerators and into people’s arms,” Durkan shrieked during a recent press conference. “We hope that if we get steady supplies, we will stand up mass vaccination sites side by side with our testing sites.”
For months, Seattle has had four free drive-up coronavirus testing sites set up, at which 556,000 tests were performed. Now, many of these sites will probably be transformed into injections sites, where National Guard and other branches of the military will presumably be tasked with plunging needles through people’s skin.
“It will really have to be an all-hands-on-deck approach,” Durkan added, suggesting that public schools throughout Seattle may all need to be transformed into WuFlu jab sites. “It is an undertaking that our country has never done before, not on this scale.”
Durkan stressed that in order to reach a minimum 70 percent vaccination rate among Seattle’s adult population, which is her goal, King County will have to vaccinate 1.3 million people. This means 2.6 million shots total in two phases.

The first round of Seattle Fire’s door-to-door vaccine distribution is scheduled to be completed by Jan. 24. The second round of distribution is slated for a finish date of Feb. 21.
Since receiving batches of vaccines back in mid-December, Seattle has not been able to inject them all into people as quickly as its leaders would have liked. Long-term care residents and health care workers were supposed to have been vaccinated a whole lot sooner.
CVS and Walgreens are also to blame. After waiting weeks for state approval, the drug chains failed to schedule vaccine clinics as they intended, resulting in a delayed rollout of the shots.
Mobile vaccination clinics were also set up to jab older adults, people with disabilities and their caretakers at some 100 family homes throughout the city whose residents agreed to participate in the scheme.
For being as far-left as it is, the city of Seattle sure has taken a liking for vaccines that were rushed into production and distribution by Trump, a man they hate, along with his allies.
Seattle requested an initial shipment of 1,000 doses of Moderna’s China Virus vaccine which, like the others, was rushed into production by Trump’s team earlier this year. While it would normally take years upon years to get a new vaccine developed and approved, Trump was able to fast-track it in just a few months, using the military to get it sent out to distribution sites across the country.
The state of Washington is still in the early stages of vaccine distribution, prioritizing health care workers, first responders and residents of long-term care facilities as first in line. The next phase will include people over 70 years of age, along with people over 50 years of age who live in multi-generational households.
“We finally got the vaccine that can provide hope,” Durkan said proudly. “We’re really going to rely on the federal government to provide a steady source.”
