Biden celebrates 300m vaccine goal but warns unvaccinated areas will ‘hurt’ with delta variant

President Joe Biden celebrated the United States administering more than 300 million Covid-19 vaccines within his first 150 days in office Friday, but he warned the delta variant could hurt unvaccinated areas.

“What we are seeing is truly an American accomplishment,” Mr Biden said at the White House.

To date, more than 176 million people, or 53.1 per cent of the US population, have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 65.1 per cent of American adults have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

“That’s an important milestone that just didn’t happen on its own or by chance. It took the ingenuity of American citizens,” Mr Biden said. “We got here because of the American people stepping up and getting vaccinated.”

When Mr Biden first entered office, he vowed for his administration to administer 100 million vaccines within the first 100 days – a goal the US easily achieved.

This is a developing story.
