Plz get your vaccine shots... 😎

WASHINGTON — The leader of the Department of Veterans Affairs health care system predicted difficulty Wednesday with administering coronavirus vaccines to its patients, particularly veterans in rural areas.

Richard Stone, executive in charge of the Veterans Health Administration, testified before the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee about the department’s strategy for administering a coronavirus vaccine once one is available. The VA ordered 73,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine last week and prepared 37 medical centers to receive and administer them. However, that won’t be nearly enough to reach veterans across the country, Stone said.
