United States President Joe Biden announced last week that 100 million shots will have been administered 58 days into his administration, a feat, he said, that is “weeks ahead of schedule.”
Despite this, about one million Americans a day were already being vaccinated under ex-president Donald Trump’s government.
At present, 65% of people 65 years of age and over have gotten at least one dose, while 36% of people above 65 have received both shots.
More community vaccination centers have also been erected, with some partnering with pharmacies, to increase the number of places where citizens can obtain shots.
According to Biden, the US will have adequate supplies of jabs for American adults before May’s end, while calling on states to open up eligibility for all adults by May 1.
The US has given emergency use authorization to Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, while AstraZeneca has not yet been okayed for use in the country.
