LIVE: President Biden speaks on the Covid-19 response and the state of vaccinations — 4/21/21

CNBC Television published this video item, entitled “LIVE: President Biden speaks on the Covid-19 response and the state of vaccinations — 4/21/21” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday will announce a tax credit for employers offering vaccine-related paid leave as the White House urges more Americans to seek out Covid shots while vaccination rates have declined slightly in recent days. The president had originally aimed to achieve 100 million shots in 100 days — a goal that drew criticism for being far too modest. The Biden administration surpassed that number in 58 days and the country is set to hit 200 million Covid shots administered since he took office.
