Biden’s Team Has Finally Been Given Access to the Critical COVID-19 Vaccination Data

WASHINGTON — In the days after President Donald Trump’s effort to reverse his electoral defeat turned deadly, administration officials finally began giving President-elect Joe Biden’s team access to critical Covid-19 vaccination data.

While Biden’s team continues to insist they will be able to administer 100 million vaccines in the first 100 days, they continue to wave warning flags that the lack of cooperation with the Trump team is impeding their ability to plan.

Biden’s transition team is “still confident” about hitting their vaccination target, said a person familiar with the matter. “There are really things the Trump administration has done to make it harder on us.”

This week, Biden’s team finally gained access to Tiberius, the government’s tracking software that was created to keep tabs on vaccine distribution and administration, according to a person familiar with the plans. After weeks of requesting to attend Operation Warp Speed vaccine briefings, last week, Trump officials finally allowed Biden’s representatives in, the source said.
