MIT review analyzing the current situation on Covid-19 vaccination campaign highlights some serious issues, those must be resolved on priority.

In the US, several States have not received enough doses of coronavirus vaccines – and online “appointment” is proving to be a chaotic experience. A new report from MIT attempts to analyze why almost a year after the pandemic hit the country, The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seems completely unprepared for vaccinations.
