(WatchDogReport.org) – Nearly three weeks after the election, the General Services Administration has not given Joe Biden approval to move forward with his team’s transition. The agency is waiting until the votes are counted and lawsuits resolve. The Democratic nominee claims that’s going to delay their COVID-19 response, but HHS is now pushing back.
On Wednesday, November 18, Assistant Secretary for Health Brett Giroir told CNN the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines won’t be impacted by the transition. He said the plan to get the vaccination to the American people is “incredibly well-oiled.”

President Donald Trump’s administration has been putting a distribution plan together for months. In September, the CDC told states to prepare for incoming vaccines. They want to make sure the rollout goes smoothly and every American who wants a COVID-19 vaccination gets one. There’s no reason those plans would change if Biden takes over — unless he messes it up.
