- Pfizer released a statement Thursday to deny claims it was having issues producing its COVID-19 vaccine.
- It came after officials in more than a dozen states complained that they were receiving fewer doses than promised and the US secretary of health and human services mentioned “manufacturing challenges.”
- In its statement, Pfizer said it was “not having any production issues” and in fact had millions of doses sitting in a warehouse, awaiting government orders on where to ship them.
- Two anonymous Trump administration officials told the Associated Press the doses were in storage on purpose, held back to ensure that people who had their first shot of the two-dose vaccine could get the second one.
