On Tuesday, President Joe Biden said the United States was on track to have enough vaccines for every adult in the country by the end of May now that Merck & Co will help rival Johnson & Johnson produce its single-shot COVID-19 vaccine.
Biden said the partnership was similar to those seen during World War II. With three vaccines now available, Biden also said he was confident the country would reach its goal of delivering 100 million COVID-19 vaccine doses in 100 days.
The President didn’t mention the previous administration’s efforts to develop the vaccine or get millions of doses delivered before the end of 2020. Maybe he ran out of time when making his remarks.
