US President Joe Biden has promised to vaccinate 100 million people in the first 100 days of his term. What’s more, he finished doing it in half the time. The Cape has already circled this week.
Currently, 97 million vaccines are administered and vaccinated in the United States at a rate of 2.2 million per day. Tomorrow marks the 50th day of Biden’s presidency, marking the symbolic milestone of 100 million vaccines taken this week instead of April 30, as promised.
If all goes well – including vaccination – 210 million vaccines should have been distributed by April 30. However, not all individuals who receive them are fully vaccinated. The United States currently approves three vaccines: those from Pfizer and Modern (two doses are required) and Johnson & Johnson (of which only one syringe is required).
There are approximately 332 million people in the United States. They should have made a lot of progress by the end of April, but the campaign is not over. President Biden said last Friday that he did not think every American would be vaccinated by the end of the summer, but that enough vaccines would be available by the end of July to achieve this goal.
However, he argued that the situation in the country should “more or less normalize” by the end of this year. “This coming Christmas will be very different from the past,” it said.
Biden’s promise to get 100 million vaccines in 100 days was seen as ambitious at the time he produced, but has recently been criticized for not being ambitious enough.
