Biden to announce 300M COVID-19 shots given in 150 days

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is marking another milestone in his quest to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control.

The White House says Biden will announce Friday that 300 million COVID-19 shots have been administered in the 150 days since he took office on Jan. 20.

But as Biden marks a new milestone in the fight against COVID-19, he’s at risk of failing to meet another: his self-imposed target to have 70% of Americans at least partially vaccinated by July 4.

As part of the administration’s vaccination effort, Vice President Kamala Harris toured a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination site in Atlanta on Friday.
