All Americans Will Be Vaccinated By July End, Assures Biden

Washington: President of United States, Joe Biden said on Tuesday that around 600 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines will be available by the end of July. “By the end of July we’ll have 600 million doses, enough to vaccinate every American,” said Biden at a CNN town hall meeting, which he said would be “enough to vaccinate every single American.”.

Moderna and Pfizer are expected to deliver 300 million doses each to the US government by the end of July. Biden said that he expects life to get back to normal by “next Christmas”.  “A year from now I think that there will be significantly fewer people that have to be socially distanced, have to wear a mask,” he added.

Biden emphasized that his deadline refers to vaccine availability, not the number of vaccines administered, a key distinction considering the logistical pitfalls that have hampered some states’ vaccine rollouts. Later in the event, Biden revealed that his public health experts, particularly Dr. Anthony Fauci, told him to “be careful not to predict things that you don’t know for certain what’s going to happen” because he will “be held accountable.” Biden also said that he wanted a faster return of children to schools and that he backs vaccinations for teachers. Authorities should “move them up in the hierarchy.”

When pressed on vaccines, Biden was quick to bring up his predecessor. “There was no backlog… there was nothing in the refrigerator figuratively or literally speaking,” he said of the vaccine supply left over by the Trump administration. He also chalked up difficulties in administering the vaccine to the fact that “we wasted so much time,” lamenting, “look at what we inherited.” “For four years, all that’s been in the news is Trump,” Biden said when asked about the former president’s impeachment. “I’m tired of talking about Trump. It’s done.”
