Title

Health officials question lag in vaccine arrivals

Description

"The federal government hasn’t sent the state as many doses as promised of the vaccine. This week, it expected 11,000 doses and received only 7,800, Smith said — a problem also reported last week in Vermont and in several other states. The state submits requests for the vaccines each week to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

'We’re really trying to understand what is going on,' said Smith. 'You can’t have a program where there is no predictability about what you’re getting.'

'It’s going to have an impact on us down the road.'
