US President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that every adult person in the US would be eligible for the Kovid-19 vaccination from April 19. Biden previously set a vaccination target for all people in the United States on May 1, which reduced all adults eligible for vaccination from April 19, about two weeks ago.
Biden said in his remarks at the White House, 'From April 19, every adult 18 and older will be considered eligible for vaccination. Apart from this, there are no more confusing rules. The president also urged senior citizens across the country to get vaccinated before extending eligibility to all adults on 19 April.
Biden said that 150 million (1.5 crores) doses of the vaccine were given to senior citizens during his 75 days in office. During this period, 75 percent of the senior citizens were given at least one dose of the vaccine. He said that he hopes that by the time he completes the 100-day tenure, he will have completed 200 million (two crores) vaccinations. The US president said the US would share additional vaccine doses with other countries by the end of the summer.
Let us know that America is well ahead of its vaccination target. According to media reports, the vaccination campaign is progressing rapidly in all 50 states. Joe Biden visited an immunization center in Alexandria, Virginia before the announcement at the White House. After this announcement, a large-scale vaccination campaign will be launched so that the epidemic can be defeated and the US economy can return in full force.
According to a White House statement given late last month, Joe Biden says his administration is increasing the number of pharmacies in the federal pharmacy immunization program from 17,000 to nearly 40,000, while more than a dozen mass vaccinations by April 19 Centers will be built.
The statement further stated that 'he will announce a new effort to fund community organizations to provide transportation and support to deliver vaccines to the country's most at-risk seniors and people with disabilities. 90 percent of adults will be able to take a vaccine within a five-mile radius.
