100 million US adults are now fully vaccinated, White House says

One hundred million adults in the United States are now fully vaccinated, White House coronavirus response director Jeff Zients announced Friday.

“That’s a hundred million Americans with a sense of relief and peace of mind, knowing that after a long and hard year, they’re protected from the virus,” Zients told reporters at a White House Covid-19 briefing.

He continued: “Knowing their decision to get vaccinated protects not just themselves but also protects their families, their friends and their communities.”

“A hundred million Americans who can follow the new CDC guidance released this week and enjoy going to the park with their family, dining and socializing with their friends outside and many more outdoor activities without needing to wear a mask,” Zients said.

The news comes as CNN reported that Biden’s coronavirus advisers are moving into the next phase of their response, from ramping up availability of Covid-19 vaccines to reaching those who have not yet gotten the shot.

White House officials have three overarching goals for the next 100 days: increasing accessibility, combating misinformation and assisting those without the resources to get vaccinated.

The US has administered approximately 237 million shots of the three Covid-19 vaccines as of Friday morning, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Biden administration doubled and surpassed its initial goal of 100 million Covid-19 vaccine doses administered in its first 100 days, reaching the 200 million benchmark on April 21. It has been racing to get shots in arms as variants spread throughout the country.

The White House has poured resources into educating the American public about the safety and efficacy of the three Covid-19 vaccines that have received emergency use authorization by the US Food and Drug Association.

The Biden administration has launched TV ads to encourage vaccinations and increase public confidence in the vaccines as it ramps up distribution.

It also announced nearly $10 billion would be allocated toward increasing vaccine access and confidence in hard-hit communities across the country, which includes $3 billion of CDC funding to support outreach efforts in the states through community-based organizations and trusted community leaders.

Biden has said there will be enough vaccine for every adult American by the end of May. Every American over the age of 16 is now eligible for a Covid-19 vaccine across the country.

  1. Thanks to the herculean accomplishments of Trump and his administration the vaccine and distribution system was in place long before Biden took office but that won’t keep “Illegitimate” Joe from taking credit. It’s all Joe can do to keep track of his mask.

    1. Boy are you gullible. Trump had no plan. At all. Nor was he ever going to put effort into putting one together. He turned down vaccine doses! Trump was out for himself and his family first and foremost. He honestly didn’t give two cents about the United States as a whole. He only ever spoke about himself or was disrespectful to others. He is the ultimate conman.

  2. Everybody go to it needs to be seen by every person in the world. Make up your own mind about what it is saying but for all our sakes just go and watch the video it might just save your life.

  3. I was a huge trump supporter but maybe just maybe do you think that he played a huge role in the new world order agenda I’m pretty sure his money makes him one of the worlds elitists. I mean every story needs a villain right? Are we all just being played judge for yourself don’t let everyone else convince you what you need to do.
