Biden Outlines New Strategy as Vaccinations Slow

Biden Outlines New Strategy as Vaccinations Slow

As everyone knows, I promised that we’d administer 100 million shots in my first 100 days. After we met that goal, we doubled it to a historic 200 million shots. By the time we reached the 100 days, last week, we had shattered that mark with over 220 million shots in arms. But soon we’ll have reached the adults who are most eager to get vaccinated. And at that point, this effort will shift to a new phase, which is what I want to talk about today. Our goal by July 4th is to have 70 percent of adult Americans, with at least one shot and 160 million Americans fully vaccinated. That means getting close to 100 million shots, some first shots, other second shots, over the next 60 days. For those having trouble finding a location or making an appointment, we’re going to make it easier than ever. We have formally launched a simple website where you can find the vaccination locations closest to you. That site is vaccines.gov. We’re also going to slip vaccines directly to the pediatricians, ship them to pediatricians, during the following weeks so parents and their children can talk to their family doctor about it, and get the shot from a provider they trust the most. Now, there’s a lot of misinformation out there, but there’s one fact I want every American to know. People who are not fully vaccinated can still die every day from Covid-19. This is your choice. It’s life and death. And I hope everyone knows within themselves it makes the choice that, well, it’s going to help them, and their loved ones be safe.
