White House will reallocate states’ unordered vaccine doses

The Biden administration will soon allow states to order coronavirus shots that other states aren’t using, marking a major shift in how the federal government allocates doses.

The move comes as supply of vaccine has begun outpacing the demand in some parts of the country. Some states have said they aren’t ordering all their shots allotted each week.

The shift in vaccine strategy was confirmed by three sources with knowledge. President Joe Biden will speak about the country’s vaccination campaign this afternoon.
