Only 140 million-plus total Covid-19 vaccination shots to go.
On Monday, President Joe Biden upped his Covid-19 vaccination objective to 150 million shots in arms in his first 100 days in office. Then on Tuesday, soon after this short article was very first published, Biden retreated from 150 million and restated his 100 million objective. In the days and weeks prior to entering office, he said his objective was 100 million vaccinations.
While Biden’s chief of personnel had actually called the 100 million goal “enthusiastic,” the vaccination rate necessary to reach the mark is very little greater than what the rate was Jan. 20.
The Biden administration has until the end of the day April 29 to reach the target.
Use this graphic to follow whether the country is on track to reach the administration’s goal. Keep in mind that overall vaccinations offered– as in first and 2nd shots, both shots counting individually– are what’s being counted. This is not the same as not full vaccinations, which are very first and second shots counted as one. Biden specifically pointed out shots in arms in his declarations about the goal.
The graphic will be updated weekdays prior to 2 p.m. ET.
