I've seen others saying the same thing. I quoted Tapper for the people who wanted an anti-Trump source.

I haven't seen anyone go as far as defying orders. I've seen pushback. That's pretty routine, IINM.

Trump's GSA move is childish and stupid, but I don't see how Biden can win a court battle over it before 270 worth of states officially announce the winner. His victory speech and media projections have no legal basis.

Even then it may be an uphill battle with the courts, and I wonder if Biden will risk getting turned down. It won’t take too long for enough states to certify.

They’ve announced partnerships with logistic giants & container tech

That’s a start. What about the last mile?

I'm guessing the first batch will go to nursing homes & HCW, so that shouldn't be too big of a challenge.

What about it? You think they're doing last mile with USPS or something? The Pfizer vaccine requires specialized cold chain infrastructure, and will likely be sent to more densely populated areas, until they can develop other storage and shipping methods.

They have containers that can keep it cold for 10 days. Can use Fedex/UPS

Correct, but it's not like you can ship it anywhere and be effective. It can only be opened twice a day, not more than one minute at a time - meaning you have to have enough daily demand to be able to plan exactly how many to use per day. And it carries up to 5 trays of 1000 each. So if you're vaccinating less than 1000 in 10 days, some would go to waste. This is all from the Wendover video on the topic.

ETA: The reference to other shipping/storage methods was because they're supposedly developing a smaller version of the container.

If we're vaccinating less than 1000 people in 10 days, waste is not our biggest problem.

Per location. I'm talking about rural areas where that's not necessarily an easy number to hit.

ETA - In case someone hasn't seen this yet:

If it's so rural that they can't get 1000 people vaccinated in 10 days, then they have no business sending a container there.

I'm not understanding why this is even being discussed. We have 350 million people to vaccinate. Who cares if we can't get to a rural area which can't support 1000 vaccinations in 10 days?

Also, just to return to the primary point here, which had to do with Pfizer being a part of Warp Speed or not, specifically regarding logistics:

Quote from: https://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/pfizer-readies-herculean-effort-distribute-coronavirus-vaccine-n1247147
The company is bypassing its usual wholesale distribution partners, including McKesson, which is also the main partner for the government’s Operation Warp Speed vaccine project, and spent over $2 billion to create its own direct distribution network.

First, places so sparsely populated most likely don't have much of a Covid problem. Second, if they care about a vaccine, then they can go to a more populated hub to get one. People who live in the sticks are used to having to travel to bigger cities to source some of their needs. One of the trade-offs for the solitude.

Have no idea.
ETA:About 60 million people, or one in five Americans, live in rural America. The term “rural” means different things to different people. For many, it evokes images of farmlands and pastoral landscapes. For our purposes, we define rural based on the official Census Bureau classification.
