US President Joe Biden announced today that his country will reach its stated goal of 100 million vaccinations tomorrow. He claims this falls on the 58th day of his term, “weeks ahead of schedule and despite setbacks during the winter storms.”
During his campaign, Biden sought 100 million injections within 100 days of taking the oath. The president said, “We are far ahead of our calendar, but there is still a long way to go.” Not only is the recovery plan implemented, but more coronavirus tests and testing centers are also needed to safely reopen schools, for example, Biden says.
2 to 3 million vaccines are given in the United States every day. A new target will be announced next week. The head of state said: “I want you to get vaccinated when it is your turn, and when you can do it. I need your help… your family, friends and neighbors, vaccinate them too.”
About two out of three people over 65 years of age now have at least one injection from Americans. “This is a time for optimism but also for caution,” Biden said. “Wash your hands, keep distance from you, wear masks in the place prescribed, and vaccinate when it is your turn. Vaccination is the best thing to do.”
