The vaccination campaign in the United States, the country most affected in the world in terms of the number of deaths from Covid-19 (more than 500,000), is a health issue but also a political one. As soon as he came to power, Joe Biden had also promised 100 million doses of vaccine administered during the first 100 days. And barely more than a month after his inauguration, the Democratic president indicated this Thursday, February 25 that the pace was very largely kept.
The country is thus “in advance of several weeks” on the vaccination program, welcomed “Potus”. “I’m here today to say that we’re halfway there, with 50 million doses in just 37 days since I became president “, he declared.” It is several weeks in advance “, he congratulates.
“We are going in the right direction despite the mess we inherited from the previous administration,” he added of Donald Trump’s government.
But if the situation and the organization improve, Joe Biden refrains from any premature triumphalism. “This is not the time to let our guard down,” he warned, urging the Americans to continue to respect barrier gestures.
Johnson & Johnson to increase the pace
Two vaccines are currently licensed in the United States, those from Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna. Everyone promised to deliver 300 million doses before the end of July, or enough to vaccinate almost the entire American population. Soon, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should also come to expand the vaccine offer on American soil, the latter requiring only a single dose. A U.S. Drugs Agency (FDA) advisory committee set to meet on Friday to review its emergency authorization, which could take place at the end of the week.
The American company has pledged to ship 100 million doses to the United States by the end of June. “If the FDA approves the authorization of this vaccine, we have a device to distribute it as quickly as Johnson & Johnson can,” said Joe Biden. “We will make even faster progress on vaccines in general in March,” he added, adding that he would give more details on this subject after the decision of the FDA.
Joe Biden promised that he would speak again on the situation of the epidemic and the vaccination campaign with each new level of 50 million injected doses crossed.
