US to reallocate COVID-19 vaccine supply to states with greater demand

WASHINGTON - The U.S. government will begin shifting how it allocates COVID-19 vaccines to states, moving from a strict by-population allocation to a more use-it-or-lose-it strategy in an effort to speed up shots in areas with higher demand.The Biden administration will move doses from states with lower demand to those with a stronger interest in vaccines, the Associated Press reported Tuesday, citing an administration official.

President Joe Biden is set to give remarks at 2:30 p.m. ET from the White House on the state of vaccinations in the country.

The new policy comes as demand for the virus shots has waned in recent weeks, and very steeply in some areas. The average number of doses given per day fell 27% from a high of 3.26 million on.
