Biden says his administration could hit 200m Covid-19 vaccines administered in first 100 days


President Joe Biden has said his administration might double its previous goal of administering 100 million Covid-19 vaccine doses within his first 100 days of office, based on the current pace the country was seeing.

“We hope we can keep the pace, about 2.5 million a day, which would mean that you may be able to get to – may be able to double it,” Mr Biden said on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday. “But we’ve met the goal and we’re continuing to move forward.”

The United States was currently averaging about 2.5 million vaccine doses administered per day. With that pace, it puts Mr Biden on track to administer more than 200 million doses by his 100th day of office, which will happen on 30 April.

This news comes after the Biden administration hit the goal of 100 million shots administered within 100 days weeks ahead of schedule.

“I’m proud to announce that tomorrow, 58 days into our administration, we will have met my goal of administering 100 million shots to our fellow Americans,” Mr Biden said on Thursday afternoon.
