Wolf administration needs to improve performance in vaccine distribution

Pennsylvanians have some reasons to be suffering from vaccine envy right now.

In Michigan, residents aged 16 and older will be eligible to receive a coronavirus vaccine starting April 5.

Ohio residents aged 50 and older are already eligible, and Gov. Mike DeWine says Ohioans aged 40 and up might soon get their turn.

Meanwhile, we’re left with just a promise that everyone who is aged 65 and older or who have pre-existing conditions will be able to register for an appointment by the end of the month.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported last week that even Democratic allies of Gov. Tom Wolf and his administration are becoming disenchanted with the pace of the vaccine rollout, with one calling it “inefficient, inadequate and inequitable.”

In order for everyone’s lives to get back to normal in the commonwealth, the Wolf administration simply needs to improve its performance when it comes to getting people vaccinated.
