Texas storms affecting COVID vaccine distribution: Fauci

Fauci addresses the daily press briefing at the White House in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The winter storm and power outages in Texas pose a significant problem for coronavirus vaccine distribution, U.S. infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Thursday.

“It is significant when you have that swath of the country … that is really in many respects immobilized. Well, obviously it’s an issue. It’s been slowed down in some places going to a grinding halt,” Fauci said in an interview with MSNBC. “We’re just going to have to make up for it.”
