President Biden (25:02): Yesterday, we crossed 150 million shots in 75 days — the first 75 days my administration, on our way to hitting our goal of 200 million shots by the 100th day in office. That, of course, is the new goal I set after passing the original mark of 100 million shots in my first 100 days, doing it in just 58 days.
In early March President Biden directed states to make sure all adults would be eligible to receive the vaccine starting on May 1st, 2021. That May 1st deadline has been moved to April 19th, 2021.
President Biden (32:56): On March the 11th, I announced that I was opening up all vaccination sites to all adults by May 1st. Many governors — Democrats and Republicans — responded and decided to beat that day, which was good. Thanks to their hard work and the hard work of the American people, and the hard work of my team, I’m announcing today that we’re moving that date up from May 1st to April 19th, nationwide. That means, by no later than April 19th, in every part of this country, every adult over the age of 18 — 18 or older — will be eligible to be vaccinated. No more confusing rules. No more confusing restrictions. My message today is a simple one. Many states have already opened up to all adults. But beginning April 19th, every adult in every state, every adult in this country is eligible to get in line to get a COVID vaccination.
The clip is 53 seconds long.
President Biden (36:51): We’ve vaccinated more people than any other nation on Earth. The vaccines have proven to be safe and effective. That should give us real hope, but it can’t let it — we can’t let it make us complacent. Despite the progress we’re making as a nation, I want every American to know in no uncertain terms that this fight isn’t over. This progress we’ve worked so hard to achieve can be reversed. Now is not the time to let down. Now is not the time to celebrate. It’s time to do what we do best as a country: do our duty, our jobs, taking care of one another. And we can and will do this, but we can’t let up now.
President Biden (27:35): I’m pleased to report, according to CDC estimates, over 80 percent of teachers, school chaffs [sic] — school staff and childcare workers received at least one shot by the end of March. And that’s great progress protecting our educators, our essential workers.
Prior to his remarks regarding the state of the coronavirus vaccines, President Biden toured a vaccination site in Virginia. At 9:05 p.m. D.C., time he shared a photo from that tour.
Using the video above that is 19 minutes and 53 seconds long, it appears that photo was captured as President Biden talks to a man named Carl, (blue and white striped shirt) the President says “Carl you probably came and wanted a shot and now Biden is holding you up.” He goes on to tell Carl he’s doing the right thing getting vaccinated.
Wednesday’s daily press briefing is scheduled to start at 12:15 p.m. D.C., time. Press Secretary Jen Psaki has invited Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo to the briefing.
