At the time of this recording, more than 55 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the United States, reaching 11.9 percent of the total U.S. population. The country is currently administering over 1.8 million shots a day. While the vaccine rollout continues to progress in fits and starts domestically, how should the U.S. government think about getting vaccines to the rest of the world?
