Maine eyes smoother vaccine rollout under new admin

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The director of Maine’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention says he sees an opportunity for a smoother rollout of coronavirus vaccines under the new presidential administration. Dr. Nirav Shah has expressed frustration with the federal Vaccine Administration Management System, which is used to coordinate coronavirus vaccination efforts. He described it Tuesday as “a situation where the practice did not live up to the promise.” However, Shah says the newly arrived Biden administration has shown “a desire to work with states on almost every level.” He says he’s hopeful that will lead to a better organized vaccination drive.
