New York: The White House will announce a new milestone soon: 100 million adults in the US are now fully vaccinated, according to a White House official.
President Biden’s coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients will announce during a briefing with reporters shortly that the US is expected to hit 100 million at some point today.
The news comes as CNN reported that Biden’s coronavirus advisers are moving into the next phase of their response, from ramping up availability to reaching those who have not yet gotten their shot.
White House officials have three overarching goals for the next 100 days:
- Increasing accessibility
- Combating misinformation
- Assisting those without the resources to get vaccinated
