President Biden Announces Steps to Contain the COVID-19 Pandemic
On Jan. 26, #PresidentBiden# announced steps to help meet the goal of administering 100 million coronavirus vaccine shots in 100 days and ramp up vaccine supply as fast as possible. To get there, the U.S. will need to average about a million shots per day. Right now about 6% of the U.S. population has received at least one vaccine dose.
President Biden also announced that he’s directed the COVID-19 Response team to coordinate the purchase of 200 million additional vaccine doses.
The steps President Biden laid out in our COVID-19 response plan mean:
– Increasing vaccine supply to states by 16%
– Increasing our total vaccine order by 50%, going from 400 million doses to 600 million doses
– Ensuring we have enough doses to vaccinate the entire U.S. population
