He also announced that his goal is to make everyone over the age of 16 eligible to use the drug, and this goal will be advanced to April 19.
Washington.-U.S. President Joe Biden celebrated on Tuesday that he has used more than 150 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine during his tenure, and at the same time emphasized the need for continued preventive measures due to the rebound of the virus’s spread.
Biden also announced that his goal is to make everyone 16 years and older eligible to use the drug by April 19.
The President boasted in a speech at the White House: “Yesterday, during the first 75 days of my administration, we used 150 million doses.”
The President has previously said that all Americans over the age of 16 will be eligible by May 1. In addition, he promised that the government will administer 200 million doses of vaccine within the first 100 days starting on April 30.
Currently, the country receives 3 million doses of vaccine every day. In the United States, a total of more than 108 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and more than 63 million people have been fully immunized, accounting for 32% and 19% of the population, respectively.
However, the President asked Americans not to neglect preventive measures despite being vaccinated to prevent the spread of the virus.
Biden warned: “This virus is spreading because too many of us have seen the end and believe that they are at an end.” “Let me be fatally honest with you: we have not reached the end. We still have it.” There is a lot of work to be done. We are still in a life-and-death race against this virus.”
In this sense, the President called on Americans to wash their hands, maintain social distancing and wear masks when vaccinating more people.
He emphasized: “Think of this way, the better time has come. As I said before, we can live peacefully and happily on July 4th.” “The real problem is that from now to then, we How much death, sickness and suffering will be seen.”
Biden believes that his strategy worked because it covered the entire government and enabled the entire country to “really defeat the virus.”
He added: “This is what we have been doing to get enough vaccine supply, mobilize more vaccinators, create more places for vaccinations, and now we have 3 million injections every day, every week More than 20 million vaccinations.” Biden.
“On Saturday alone, more than four million were managed.”
Biden visited the vaccination center in Virginia earlier, where he thanked the staff for the administration of injections and thanked the participants for coming here to receive the injections.
The president said at the scene: “This is the way to defeat it.” “Vaccination when possible.”
Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech licensed vaccines require two doses, while Johnson & Johnson only requires one dose. Pfizer’s vaccine has been licensed from the age of 16, while the other two vaccines can be used from the age of 18.
