Vaccine Allocation Is Out Of Balance


Last updated 2/8/2021 at 2:26pm

I know everyone locally is doing everything they can to address COVID-19. Just based on the math I believe the county allocation of vaccines, 200 per week, is pitifully small.

Assume there are 328 million people in the U.S. and there are 34,000 residents in Transylvania County. And assume daily vaccine production is over 800,000 vaccines seven days a week. Doing the math of 34,000 (Transylvania County residents) divided by 328 million (U.S. population) times 800,000 (vaccines produced per day), you get a allocation based on population of 83 vaccines per day or 580 vaccines per week.

I can see where because we are not a “hot spot” that the number of vaccines would be less, but I believe that the math proves that 200 per week is way too low.

Am I missing something in my assumptions or is the allocation out of balance?
