US Still in Life and Death Race Against Coronavirus: Biden

A group of teenagers serving as 'Covid-19 Student Ambassadors' joined Governor Gretchen Whitmer to receive a dose of the Pfizer Covid vaccine at Ford Field during an event to promote and encourage Michigan residents to go and get their vaccines COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Set To Expand To All US Adults By Mid-April : Coronavirus Updates

The president also said no one should fear mutations of the coronavirus that are showing up in the US after being discovered in other countries.

"Let me be deadly earnest with you, we aren't at the finish line", Biden said. We still have a lot of work to do. "We're still in a life-and-death race against this virus". Seventy-five percent of people older than 65 have now received at least one shot, and more than 55% of them are fully vaccinated.

At least a dozen states opened eligibility to anyone 16 and older on Monday alone, while New Jersey and OR announced this week that all residents 16 and older will become eligible on April 19.

Biden also stressed that making all adults eligible for the vaccine would help bring clarity as there will be "no more confusing rules, no more confusing restrictions".

The Washington Post called Trump's claim in September "without evidence", and CNN reported, "Trump says every American can get a coronavirus vaccine by April, but health experts say that's not likely".

"We just don't want to have to go back to really shutting things down".

"Hundreds of millions of doses will be available every month and we expect to have enough vaccines for every American by April", Trump said on September 18, which at the time contradicted outlooks by top medical officials who said most Americans wouldn't be vaccinated until the second or third quarter of 2021.

Some states, including Texas and Florida, have banned government-mandated vaccine passports.

"The government is not now nor will we be supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential", Psaki told reporters during a news conference.

Psaki noted that a federal mandate requiring people to obtain a certificate could disadvantage those who choose not to be inoculated. "Businesses and organizations have great power in their voices and ability to push for change, and I respect the decision of the players to speak out against this unjust law", Warnock said in a statement. "How much death, disease and misery are we going to see between now and then".
