BIDEN PROMISES 100 MILLION COVID-19 SHOTS IN NEXT 10 DAYS

President Joe Biden said on Monday that the US was on track to meet two big goals in the coming 10 days: administering over 100 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, and sending 100 million stimulus checks.

"Over the next 10 days, we'll reach two giant goals. The first is 100 million shots in people's arms will have been completed in the next 10 days, and 100 million checks in people's pockets," Biden said during a speech at the White House.

"Shots in arms and money in pockets — that's important," he added.

The US hit the first goal on Friday, surpassing the benchmark of 100 million shots administered. The figure covers doses in Pfizer-BioNTech's and Moderna's two-shot regimens and Johnson & Johnson's one-shot vaccine.
