County health directors criticize the State's handling of Covid vaccine supplies

Local Health Directors this week (January 22) complained to Dr. Mandy Cohen, Secretary of NC. Health and Human Services about the way the state is handling the allocation of the Covid 19 vaccine supplies.  They contend that rural counties are being shortchanged and decisions made in Raleigh are having a negative impact on local counties without adequate input from those counties.

Everyone understands that the urgency of getting the vaccines out is a challenge, but the letter from the Local Directors Association spotlights the shortcomings that can be traced to poor management in addition to the actual shortages of supplies.  It raised serious questions for the Governor and Secretary to which they, as of yet, have not responded to.

As Covid Joe continues to flail away at this same issue, an issue far beyond his level of comprehension, the state's county health directors have come together to formally criticize the Democratic Socialist Governor Cooper, and his Administration for their botched Covid vaccine roll-out.

From Democratic Socialist Covid Joe to North Carolina's Democratic Socialist governor, they really have a tough time with raw logic.
