The announcement can be watched live later this afternoon on the White House official YouTube channel and on C-SPAN at 3:45 EST.

Psaki also said the president will be announcing that the country has administered 150 million doses of the vaccine, meaning it will most likely achieve its goal of 200 million doses by April 30.

As of April 6, 31 states, including Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, and Texas, allow all adults over the age of 16 to receive the vaccine, according to U.S. News.
