Biden moving vaccine eligibility date to April 19, official says

He thanked everyone for administering the shots and for showing up to receive them.

U.S. President Joe Biden will announce on Tuesday that the target to make COVID-19 vaccines available to everyone age 16 and older will be moved up by almost two weeks, the White House said, as the United States has administered 150 million shots since he took office.

Biden set to announce on Tuesday that all United States adults will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine by April 19.

On Tuesday, President Biden is scheduled to visit the vaccination site at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia.

Psaki said that the strongest interest comes from private businesses looking to reopen sites where "there are large swaths of people", like in stadiums or theaters. That puts the president well on track to meet his new goal of 200 million shots administered by April 30 - his 100th day in office.

The White House said Monday that almost 1 in 3 Americans and over 40% of adults have received at least one shot, and almost 1 in 4 adults is fully vaccinated.

The authorized vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech both require two doses, while Johnson & Johnson's is a one-shot vaccine.

She continued: "That Georgia was just one of the first states to act on a concerted effort to use easily disprovable conspiracy theories to fuel their attempts to make it even harder for eligible Americans to vote".
