The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Sunday that the federal government doesn’t know how much coronavirus vaccine the nation has.

“I can’t tell you how much vaccine we have, and if I can’t tell it to you then I can’t tell it to the governors and I can’t tell it to the state health officials,” CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told “Fox News Sunday.”

Dr. Rochelle Walensky acknowledged that the administration faces other challenges in the battle against the virus as well.

“The first is the supply, and we’re working closely with manufacturers so that does not become a constraint,” Walensky told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “We also need to sort of make sure that this, the supply, gets to pharmacies, that we have enough vaccinators, that we have enough places and outreach to do the vaccination.”

Walensky stressed to Wallace that the picture is optimistic, however, with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine set to be approved in the weeks ahead, and that a fourth vaccine could be approved shortly after that.
