Health workers are exhausted: former Biden COVID-19 adviser

In a primetime address from the White House, Biden said the USA was set to "mark independence" from COVID-19 by the Fourth of July, thanks to a mass vaccination effort that's reaching about 2.25 million US residents a day.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday released highly anticipated guidance on practices considered safe for those who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, as it relates to gatherings, quarantine and testing.

Biden says his administration will also roll out a new website and 1-800 number created to help people find a vaccination location and secure an appointment. But as the financial stimulus from the newly enacted relief bill reaches a growing number of vaccinated people, Biden offered cautious optimism to a country that, like the rest of the world, is exhausted of pandemic restrictions and economic pain.

Despite Republicans across the nation being among the 74% of the public supporting the relief plan, not a single Republican member of the U.S. House or Senate supported it.

HHS will also launch a new website to help Americans find available vaccines, the aides said.

US President Joe Biden is directing all 50 states to make every adult eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination by May 1.

The president also planned to "communicate to Americans that if we all do our part, there's a good chance that families, friends, neighbors will be able to gather in small groups to celebrate Independence Day on July Fourth", according to another senior administration official.

The two German shepherds have now been sent back to the family home in DE , where they are expected to remain. After the pooches moved into the White House, Biden tweeted a photo of them by his side in the Oval Office.

Biden announced plans to allow dentists, advanced and intermediate EMTs, Midwives, optometrists, paramedics, physician assistants, podiatrists, respiratory therapists, veterinarians, well medical students and nursing students to administer the vaccine. It is true that President Donald Trump downplayed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic for months.

Earlier in the day, Biden signed the American Rescue Plan, created to be a financial bridge to hard-hit Americans and a boost to the economy, in the Oval Office with Vice President Kamala Harris at his side. And Americans should continue washing their hands, keeping socially distant, and wearing masks, he said.

Biden called on the public to get vaccinated in an effort to helping the United States get back to normal.

Mr Biden said the relief package will rebuild "the backbone of this country".

The package provides $400 billion for $1,400 direct payments to most Americans, $350 billion in aid to state and local governments, an expansion of the child tax credit and increased funding for COVID-19 vaccine distribution.

The spending bill, one of the largest in U.S. history, passed Congress without a single Republican supporter.

He is set to announce the move during a speech on Thursday evening.
