(Washington) The United States will endorse President Joe Biden’s goal of 100 million injections during his first 100 days in office on Friday, more than a month ago.
At 58H On my term in office, we will have reached my goal of 100 million injections, ”the Democratic president announced Thursday, referring to his election promise.
“We are far ahead of our schedule, but there is still a long way to go,” he added. It is time for optimism, but we must not calm down. ”
2.4 million vaccines per day
The vaccination rate in the United States has accelerated dramatically in recent weeks.
It currently stands at 2.4 million doses per day on average, down from less than a million when the Democrat took office on January 20.
In this context, it seems realistic to think of doubling the initial target of 200 million vaccines during the first 100 days of Biden.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), nearly 30% of Americans over the age of 18 have received at least one dose. This number rises to over 65% for Americans 65 and over
Once in power, some Republicans mocked Joe Biden’s goal, which they considered too weak.
Three vaccines are now authorized in the United States: the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (only one dose is required per person) and those for the Pfizer / BioNTech Alliance and Moderna (two doses).
The United States has already issued enough orders to receive enough doses by the end of May to immunize all American adults.
