Exactly one year after the World Health Organization declared the spread of Covid-19 a global pandemic, President Joe Biden said that he would make all American adults eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine by May 1. He also announced the government’s purchase of 100 million doses of the vaccine fulfilling promises made during his first week in office.
In his first prime time address, Biden stated that all adults would be able to sign up for their first shot by May 1. Additionally, by this deadline, Biden said that there would be a federally supported website that displays the closest locations with available vaccines.
President Biden also announced the deployment of more than 4,000 active military personnel to help distribute the vaccine and allow dentists, paramedics, physician assistants, veterinarians, and medical/health care students to administer the vaccine.
