Biden to Break 100 Million Vaccine Dose Goal 1 Month Early

President Biden's goal was 100 million shots in 100 days, but the government is well on track to hit that target a month early.

The President said to the National Institutes of Health:

Pres. Biden says the US will hit the 100 million shots in the first 100 days:
"All in all, we are on the right track to exceed the goal I set myself on the first day."

"I think we will not only achieve this, we will break it."

Pres. Biden says 100 million cans that were promised by the end of June will now be delivered by the end of May.

They are now well on their way to having 300 million Americans vaccinated by the end of July.

According to the White House pool report made available to PoliitcusUSA, the president suggested that the Trump administration misled the amount of vaccine available:

Biden said the Trump administration left his team with a "strong impression" that "it was a distribution problem."

"But that wasn't the main problem," he said.

Biden said there was a "huge logistical problem" with vaccine supply that he found "between the time we were elected and the time someone realized we were elected".

The Biden administration inherited a total mess and had to focus on a different problem than what they thought they would face. Joe Biden is cleaning up Trump's mess while trying to save American lives by giving the American people as much vaccine as possible as soon as possible.

The good news is that Biden's remarks suggest that there may be light at the end of the tunnel. Once enough vaccine becomes available, the challenge is getting people vaccinated, but that's a much better situation than the one that Trump handed to the Biden administration.
