The White House expressed concern Monday amid ongoing issues facing many Americans who are now eligible for Covid-19 vaccines but still struggling to set up vaccination appointments, suggesting the federal government may step in to provide support to states.

“Scheduling an appointment is too difficult – remains too difficult – in too many places,” White House Covid response team coordinator Jeff Zients said during Monday’s virtual Covid briefing.

He said that “things have gotten better” in some states and localities, suggesting, “The pharmacy systems are often better at scheduling appointments.”

“But overall, too many Americans are suffering frustration, taking up way too much time to schedule an appointment,” Zients said.

Despite the increase in vaccine supply and vaccination sites, Zients said the administration is looking to help states improve their website capacities, as well as “lower tech solutions that the federal government might be able to provide,” including call centers and people who can help navigate the system.

As of now, Zients acknowledged, “Scheduling remains, for far too many people, too frustrating, and we need to make it better.”
