New agreements with Moderna and Pfizer increase US total vaccine supply by 50 percent to 600 million doses.
The United States has secured another 200 million vaccine doses against the coronavirus. It informs the US President, Joe Biden, Thursday night local time.
– This afternoon, we signed contracts to get 100 million more vaccines from Moderna and 100 million more Pfizer vaccines, says Biden at a press conference.
The new agreements increase the country’s total vaccine supply by 50 percent to a total of 600 million doses.
Joe Biden goes on to say that the United States is on track to secure enough doses to vaccinate 300 million Americans by the end of July. There are just under 330 million people living in the country.
At the press conference, Joe Biden also accused his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, of not having a plan to fight the corona pandemic or vaccinate the country’s people.
The vaccines from both Moderna and BioNTech / Pfizer are currently approved for emergency use in the United States and require two shots.
46.4 million plugs have been given and at least 33.7 million people in the United States have received one or more doses. That equates to about ten percent of the population.
