HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is blaming the federal government for the slow rollout of vaccines in the commonwealth.
“So at this point, we have a need for 8 million vaccines and we have received 1.5 million vaccines. So one of the big constraints that we’re all working under is the lack of supply and that’s facing states all across the country,” Wolf said during a press conference on Tuesday.READ MORE: 25-Year-Old Woman Robbed After Offering $5 To Suspect Asking For Money In Fairmount, Philadelphia Police Say
