Team Biden is rolling out a broad plan regarding COVID:
The “National Strategy for the Covid-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness,” previewed in a 21-page summary on Wednesday evening by Mr. Biden’s advisers, outlines the kind of muscular and highly coordinated federal response that Democrats have long demanded and President Donald J. Trump refused. Instead, Mr. Trump insisted that state governments take the lead.
Biden's use of the Defense Production Act today is for vaccine supplies but seemingly not vaccines or vaccine ingredients. Some of that was already done under Trump but it means no real bump in actual vaccine production, unless another vaccine is approved.

Important to have vessels but no more production of the vaccine?
