President Donald Trump is trying to pass the buck for the slow rollout of the novel coronavirus vaccine, and one top public health expert is not buying it.

Dr. Ashish Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, tore into the Trump administration on Wednesday during an appearance on CNN in which he said it appeared that there is no plan at the federal level to coordinate vaccine distribution.

"The administration has... decided that their job essentially ends when the vaccine gets to the state and there's nothing more to do," he said. "We should have set up vaccination centers. It's not like we had no idea that vaccines were coming, we have known for months that this was going to happen and there were no planning for that last mile."

Jha went on to say he was particularly surprised that no planning went into vaccine distribution months ago, as the Trump administration should have learned from its early failures to procure sufficient COVID-19 testing kits that they needed to plan ahead.

"It strikes me as a level of incompetence I have to say I am stunned by," he said. "We did this with testing, we did this with PPE, but I thought we were going to get it better with vaccines and it doesn't feel like we are, and now states are going to have to figure this out."
