On Tuesday, March 2, U.S. President Joe Biden offered an update on the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines across the country.*
Biden announced that the U.S. is "now on track to have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May."
Just three weeks ago, the president said that all American adults would be able to receive a vaccine by the end of July.
He has now pushed that date forward. "That's progress," he said.
This updated timeline comes as a result of a new partnership between Johnson & Johnson and Merck which is expected to increase Johnson & Johnson's vaccine production significantly.
Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has also made a promise regarding when Canadians will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations.
Trudeau says that every Canadian who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by September.
He has reiterated several times that the country is on track to make that happen.
