Many Vaccine Sites Stop Checking ID, Flout State Guidelines, As Shots Not Reaching Public Fast Enough Though some 30 million coronavirus vaccine doses have been distributed throughout the United States, there's already a backlog in terms of administering the shots to the public, with just over 11 million of these making it into people's arms as of Thursday, according to numbers cited in Reuters . This has prompted questions over whether various state eligibility rules, which require identify checks, should be strictly enforced or if for the sake of speed and ease of getting the shots out faster, sites like pharmacies should forgo ID checks and rely on an honor system and common sense (i.e.: it's easier to know who's elderly and thus part of more vulnerable crowd of first recipients).

Summary List Placement Around 260 million Americans are eligible to receive coronavirus vaccines, but procuring a shot may be easy or difficult, depending on where they live. US federal officials recommended Tuesday to expand vaccinations to all Americans ages 65 and older . Many states haven't finished vaccinating their first priority groups, which mainly include healthcare workers and nursing home residents. Some states have also prioritized vaccinations for frontline essential workers or individuals with health problems that raise their risk of severe disease. Operation Warp Speed, the federal government's coronavirus vaccine initiative, recently advised states to vaccinate these priority groups in tandem in situations where vaccine supply exceeds demand or doses might expire. Warp Speed officials have also pushed states to begin deploying vaccines at pharmacies , community health centers, and mass vaccination sites. That's a daunting challenge for many states with understaffed or underfunded health departments — though an $8.7 billion coronavirus relief package will soon assist states with vaccine distribution issues.
