Lawrence Gostin, director of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University, told The Daily Beast on Monday that struggling hospitals shouldn’t bear the brunt of the blame.
“It is the height of hypocrisy to call out under-performing hospitals in their vaccine rollout. The real blame should be placed at the federal and state governments for a disastrous vaccine rollout campaign, poorly planned and anemically funded,” Gostin said. “Hospitals were given short notice on when and how many vaccines they would get, supplies arrived during the holidays when they are short-staffed. Hospital staff got zero training, and received precious few resources.”
