Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- At a white house press conference, United States (U.S.) President Joe Biden discussed the new administration's fight against the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and its vaccination efforts.
Biden said the supply of vaccines to states that are going through difficult times due to the Covid-19 pandemic will be accelerated in the coming days.
In his statement, Biden promised to have enough vaccine stock for 300 million Americans by end of summer or early fall.
Biden said he has also instructed the Department of Health to increase federal vaccine stocks.
"We will get a total of 200m more vaccine doses from Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. This is a wartime undertaking, it’s not hyperbole. This will be enough vaccine to fully vaccinate 300m Americans by the end of summer, beginning of the fall," Biden said in his statement.
During his speech, Biden criticized the previous administration's vaccination efforts, giving his team instructions to create a proper vaccination effort as soon as possible.
Biden said the supply of vaccines to states in the country will be increased by 16% within 3 weeks.
Biden said the National Guard would also contribute to vaccination efforts.
