Joe Biden Will Be Making A Huge COVID-19 Vaccine Announcement Today & Here's How To Watch

President Joe Biden will be making an announcement today saying that he will be moving up his original deadline for allowing all adults in the U.S. to be eligible for the COVID vaccine by two weeks.

The president stated in early March that all adults should be eligible by May 1, but now plans on moving that date to April 19, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

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.
