It's coming up short for the state as the state vaccine status dashboard is showing the excess of doses received over doses administered rise. On Thursday we are at 4.1M more doses on hand than have been administered. This is more than 2 weeks worth of shots. The state was previously down closer to just 1 week of shots being backlogged. Worse, the trend is that the backlog is GROWING. The state needs to keep its eye on the ball.

First, thank you to the Voice for the most informative article I've read on this subject. You do a better job than other media in explaining what's actually happening.

I’m deeply concerned and angered by the feuding between our county and our state over vaccine distribution. Officials at both the state and county levels must learn to communicate directly with each other in a productive manner to solve problems and get the job done. The public is not interested in finger-pointing and grandstanding in front of the press. We are interested in getting vaccinated ASAP. It is their job to make that happen.
