More than 64 million Americans have had at least one dose, which is about 25% of the adult US population.
OHIO, United States – In his first prime-time address since taking office since taking office, President Joe Biden said in just 50 days, “All adult Americans can get a vaccine by May 1st at the latest.”
More than 64 million Americans have had at least one dose of COVID-19, which is roughly 25% of the adult population.
Biden says that’s still not enough to get where he wants the nation to be, but it is possible to get there by July 4th. The people we spoke to at the Side Cut Metropark in Maumee are thrilled with the update.
“I’m really excited. Compared to the previous president, we had no idea when we would be vaccinated. Now we know that hopefully I should be vaccinated by May 1st. I could go back to a more normal life,” said Jimmy Ray . a resident of Toledo.
Others say they are excited about the idea of being social and seeing their friends again.
“My mom just made her appointment for 55 and over yesterday and we’re definitely the type that was hypervigilant – like no expectations, no restaurants, that sort of thing – so we’re more than excited about it,” said Anne Fox- Said Ostrich.
“It would be just great to be able to speak to real people live and up close. I think we’re all looking forward to it,” said David Strayer.
President Biden also said he was using the military, FEMA personnel and retired doctors to help vaccinate Americans.
