WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. timeline for vaccinations against the deadly COVID-19 coronavirus will now stretch into late May or early June due to a limited supply of vaccines and the slow rollout of Johnson & Johnson’s drug, Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease official leading the country’s pandemic response, said on Monday.
“The critical issue is that the demand far outweighs the supply,” Fauci said in a CNN interview. “I’m a little disappointed that the number of doses that we’re going to get early on from J&J are relatively small.”
