The President of the United States announced on Tuesday (April 6) that all adults will be eligible to receive the vaccine by April 19.
“No more confusing rules, no more confusing restrictions,” he said from the White House, bumping up the original promised date of May 1 by almost two weeks.
He also issued a warning: “We aren’t at the finish line. We still have a lot of work to do. We still are in a life and death race against this virus.”
He added that the administration has made a “dramatic turnaround” in vaccine distribution since he took office, with more than 150 million shots administered. He has a goal of 200 million by April 30, which is also his 100th day in office.
He encouraged everyone to get the vaccine, as “we’re getting more and more data on just how effective” the shots are.
“What we do know will determine how many people we save or lose in April and May and in the month of June,” Biden said, once again saying his goal is a return to normalcy by the 4th of July.
