Gov. Tony Evers called news that the federal reserve of COVID-19 vaccines was already exhausted "a slap in the face to the people of Wisconsin."
Evers' self-described "tirade" came Friday after the Washington Post reported that no vaccine reserve existed, even as Vice President Mike Pence and other Trump administration officials promised this week to release more doses from it.
In a media briefing, Evers said the situation was "plain old obfuscation" by the federal government.
Evers said when he and other governors spoke with Pence and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar earlier this week, Pence and Azar gave the impression that they'd be shipping states vaccine doses that had been stockpiled.
