Biden Vaccine Goal Deadline Looms, and The Numbers are Shocking

This is simply astonishing.

When Joe Biden took office in January, he began his presidency with a number of wildly ambitious goals, particularly as it pertained to the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden was inheriting a national emergency, which is difficult enough, but Donald Trump’s insistence that the election was fraudulent prevented a totally smooth transition from taking place.  Upon arrival, Biden seemed dismayed at the state of the vaccine rollout program, and may have had serious doubts about hitting the deadlines that he created for himself.

Now, as one such goal looms, the numbers are truly stunning.

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.

At this rate, it’s possible that 200 million people could be vaccinated by Biden’s 100th day in office, which would be double the original goal.

The news comes as Americans begin returning to normalcy en masse, setting us up for one wild ride in the coming weeks.
