So President-elect Biden is going to use all of the available COVID-19 vaccines to provide initial shots to twice as many people — and hope there is sufficient supply available for the necessary second shots (“Biden will not hold back COVID-19 vaccine doses, will maximize supply as manufacturing catches up,” Web, Jan. 8).

Doubling the number of people who get this shot is good. But both holding back a sufficient quantity of the second shot and being unable able to provide that follow-on shot are bad.

If President Trump had publicized an official U.S. policy based on hope, the Democrats would have tried to impeach him for that as well. Yet now even Anthony Fauci seems to believe in hope rather than science.

Hope sounds like a political basis for a policy, not a scientific one. But I guess since we’re now in liberal progressive lala land, science isn’t so important anymore.
