Stephen Flynn and Nada Sanders in Newsweek: U.S. COVID Vaccine Rollout ‘Extremely Poor’—But Some States Buck the Trend
by Kashmira Gander, Newsweek
Professor Stephen E. Flynn, founding director of the Global Resilience Institute at Northeastern University, said: “Planning matters. National leadership matters. A strong public healthcare system matters. The United States has lacked all three.”
“Extremely poor,” was the phrase used by both Nada R. Sanders, distinguished professor of supply chain management at Northeastern University, and Tim Ford, professor and chair in biomedical and nutritional Sciences at the University of Massachusetts.
Sanders compared the government’s approach to “tossing the vaccines over an imaginary wall and leaving it to the states to figure out how to distribute them. No coordination, no communication, no transparency.”
