  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden ‘May Be Able to Double’ Goal of 100 Million Vaccines in First 100 Days” – below is their description.

    President Joe Biden is poised to meet his goal of delivering 100 million Covid-19 vaccine shots in his first 100 days in office as soon as Thursday, reaching the milestone more than a month ahead of time.

    As of Wednesday, his 57th day in office, the U.S. had vaccinated nearly 98 million people since Biden’s inauguration. The pace of shots has risen to an average of nearly 2.5 million per day for the last week.

    That leaves Biden within grasp of his target on Thursday — the 58th day of his presidency — and poised to hit it no later than Friday, barring a major slowdown. He’s scheduled to speak publicly on Thursday afternoon about the state of vaccinations.

    With the pace continuing to accelerate, Biden is actually on course to double his goal and see 200 million shots by his 100th day as president, though hiccups in deliveries or rollout of the shots could impact that.
