Axios: Vice President Kamala Harris On The Vaccine Stockpile

Video Transcript

- You're coming up on a month inside the machine. What are you finding is harder about the pandemic? How are you finding the hole is deeper?

KAMALA HARRIS: I mean, the challenge, Mike, is what I explained to the mayors. There was no stockpile. Right? It's in many ways--

- No stockpile of?

KAMALA HARRIS: Of vaccines, right? So we're looking at this. There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations. We were leaving it to the states and local leaders to try and figure it out.

KAMALA HARRIS: And to challenge that everything is possible, we've got to figure out a way. That has to be our standard.

That's how I feel about it. And maybe that's why everybody was laughing, because sometimes I express that kind of emotion in meetings.
