President Joe Biden's coronavirus advisers told governors during a call Tuesday that they plan to redistribute vaccine doses should states not order all the vaccines allocated to them each week, a senior administration official told CNN.

(CNN)President Joe Biden's coronavirus advisers told governors during a call Tuesday that they plan to redistribute vaccine doses should states not order all the vaccines allocated to them each week, a senior administration official told CNN.

States will still get allocations based on their population, but the change means if a certain state does not order all of the doses available to them, the White House will redistribute them and likely give them to a state that has higher demand than their allocation.

In recent weeks, several states have not ordered their full allocation of vaccines due to dropping demand across the country.
