The United States on Friday cleared President Joe Biden’s target of injecting 100 million coronavirus vaccines, more than a month ahead of his target date for his 100th day in office, as the president prepared to aim for more high in the nationwide immunization effort. With the nation now administering around 2.5 million doses per day, Biden, who has pledged to set a new vaccination target next week, raised the possibility of setting a target of 200 million doses by his 100th day. mandate. told reporters before leaving the White House for Atlanta. His comments come as the United States is on the verge of having enough of the three currently licensed vaccines to cover the entire adult population in just 10 weeks. As the pace of vaccinations and supply in the United States improves, the White House has said the nation is now in a position to help provide its neighbors Canada and Mexico with millions of life-saving shots. The Biden administration on Thursday revealed the outlines of a plan to “loan” a limited number of vaccines to Canada and Mexico as the president announced that the United States was close to meeting his target. 100-day injection “well ahead” of schedule. Coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients said on Friday that 2.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine would be sent to Mexico and 1.5 million to Canada. He stressed that because AstraZeneca firing is not yet authorized in the United States, “this loan will not reduce the supply of vaccines to Americans.” “Our first priority remains the vaccination of the American population,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday. But she added that “ensuring our neighbors can contain the virus is a critical step for the mission, is essential to ending the pandemic. The AstraZeneca vaccine has not yet been approved for use in the United States but has been approved by the World Health Organization. Tens of millions of doses have been stored in the United States, awaiting emergency use authorization, which has sparked an international outcry that the life-saving vaccine is withheld when it could be used elsewhere. The White House has said only 7 million doses of AstraZeneca are ready to ship. The initial series of US-made doses are owned by the federal government under agreements with drugmakers, and the Biden administration has faced calls from allies around the world to release AstraZeneca’s plans for immediate use. Biden also responded to direct requests from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to purchase vaccines produced in the United States. Global public health advocates say wealthy countries like the United States need to do much more to help stem the spread of the virus. pandemic. The World Health Organization released a report on Thursday that found less than 7 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Africa to date. This is the equivalent of what the United States administers in a matter of days. Biden arranged for the United States to contribute financially to the COVAX alliance, supported by nongovernmental organizations like Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, as well as the World Health Organization and the Outbreak Preparedness Coalition. Innovations, which will share vaccines with more than 90 low- and middle-income countries, but the United States has yet to commit to dose sharing. From his early days in office, Biden set out clear – and achievable – measures for American success, whether it be vaccinations or school reopens, as part of an apparent strategy of under-promising, then to over-deliver. Aides believes exceeding his targets breeds confidence in the government after the Trump administration’s sometimes fanciful rhetoric about the virus. The 100 million dose target was first announced on December 8, days before the United States even had an approved vaccine for COVID-19, not to mention the three that have now been approved for ’emergency. Still, he was generally on hand, so optimistic. By the time Biden was inaugurated on January 20, the United States had already administered 20 million shots at a rate of about 1 million per day, bringing complaints just when Biden’s goal was not ambitious enough. He quickly revised it up to 150 million doses in his first 100 days. Now, the United States is injecting an average of about 2.5 million doses per day – and the pace is expected to increase significantly later this month in conjunction with an expected increase in the supply of the vaccines – setting a target of 200 millions of doses at your fingertips. The president decided to speed up vaccine deliveries from Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, as well as to increase the number of places to get vaccinated and the people who can administer them, with an emphasis on increase in the country’s capacity to inject doses as supply constraints lift. The risk of setting overly optimistic expectations is that an administration can be defined by its inability to meet them, as in May 2020, when President Donald Trump said the nation had “prevailed” over the virus. At the time, the country had recorded around 80,000 deaths from the virus. This week, the death toll in the United States topped 538,000. Trump’s lax approach and lack of credibility have also contributed to the lack of respect for public safety rules among the American public.
