President Biden said on Tuesday that every American who wants a Covid-19 vaccine will be able to get one by the end of July, striking a more optimistic tone than he delivered last week when he warned that logistical and distribution hurdles would most likely mean that many people would still not have been vaccinated by the end of the summer.
Mr. Biden made the comment in Milwaukee during a town hall-style meeting hosted by CNN. When the host, Anderson Cooper, asked him when every American who wants a vaccine was “going to be ready to get a vaccine?” Mr. Biden replied without hesitation: “By the top of July this year.”
He then tempered the remark slightly, telling Mr. Cooper that the doses would “be available” by that time. But he also said he did not expect it to take months to get the shots into people’s arms.
At a time when Americans are yearning to urge back to what life was like before the pandemic, Mr. Biden sought to supply reassurance tempered with reality.
While the president said he did not want to “over promise,” he said at one point that “by next Christmas i think we’ll be during a very different circumstance God willing, than we are today.” At another point he predicted that by the time the next school year starts in September, the nation would be “significantly better off than we are today.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidelines that urge school districts to reopen as soon as possible if they follow safety precautions.
Last week, the Biden administration said it had secured 200 million more doses of coronavirus vaccines, enough to inoculate every American adult. The extra doses amount to a 50 percent increase within the vaccine supply, and can give the administration the amount of doses necessary to hide 300 million people by the top of the summer.
But Mr. Biden warned at the time that it would still be difficult to get those shots into people’s arms. “It’s one thing to have the vaccine,” Mr. Biden said then. “It’s another thing to have vaccinators.”
On Tuesday, Mr. Biden used his public office to urge Americans to urge vaccinations, addressing questions on the efficacy of the vaccine made by Johnson & Johnson, which has not yet been granted emergency authorization by the Food and Drug Administration. That vaccine has been shown to be slightly less efficacious against a number of the more contagious variants of the coronavirus than the 2 vaccines already in use, one by Moderna and other by Pfizer BioNTech. Mr. Biden said Americans got to take it if it's offered.
“The clear notion is if you’re eligible, if it’s available, get the vaccine,” he said. “Get the vaccine.”Dr. Dhillon Randeep
