January 26, 2021

ARLINGTON, Va. — Following the Biden administration’s announcement of an increase in the supply of available vaccines for millions of Americans, Chester “Chip” Davis, Jr., President and CEO of the Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA), issued a statement.

“Today’s actions by the Biden administration to expand access to 200 million more vaccines represents a major step in our fight against this public health crisis. The rapid increase in allocation reaffirms the critical role the healthcare distribution industry plays in safely and securely transporting COVID-19 vaccines from manufacturer to the nation’s pharmacies, long-term care facilities, hospitals, health systems, physicians’ offices and other sites of care. To date, more than 44 million doses have been distributed to communities across the country, and our industry is committed to doing everything possible to ensure every American has access to a vaccine.”
