Federal government remains confident AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine is safe

Biden said last week that there would be enough vaccines for all American adults seeking them by May, though he stopped short of pledging that all those seeking vaccines would be eligible to receive them. "We've made so much progress". "What America needs now is to fully reopen our economy and our classrooms", House of Representatives Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said on Twitter.

"A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked.denials for days, weeks, then months which led to more deaths, more stress and loneliness".

Psaki wouldn't say if that was the date by which the White House thought most Americans would be vaccinated for coronavirus.

It will also double the number of federally backed mass vaccination centers, and deploy an additional 4,000 active-duty military personnel to assist in the vaccine effort, bringing the total number of troops involved to 6,000.

On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released initial guidance for how vaccinated people can resume some normal activities.

The administration will also attempt to expand the pool of professionals who can give vaccines to include paramedics, physicians' assistants, veterinarians, and dentists, and medical students, including some training for non-physician positions.

President Biden strongly called out hate crimes against Asian-Americans who have been scapegoated by even former President, Donald Trump. Trump, it was later revealed, acknowledged that he had been deliberately "playing down" the threat of the virus.

Biden also encouraged Americans to keep up mitigation efforts - wearing masks, keeping social distance and practicing good hygiene - to stop the virus and its variants from spreading. "The last holiday with extended family", Biden said, recounting the toll the virus has wrought.

Independent global observers have disputed the military's claim - saying no irregularities were observed. A witness said five of them were shot in the head. "No-one will be in peace until this situation ends".

"This is a chance for him to really beam into everybody's living rooms and to be both the mourner in chief and to explain how he's leading the country out of this", said presidential historian and Rice University professor Douglas Brinkley. "He's got to win over hearts and minds for people to stay masked and get vaccinated, but also recognize that after the past year, the federal government hasn't forgotten you".

President Joe Biden, accompanied by Vice President Kamala Harris, looks up after signing the American Rescue Plan. The package is a major political victory for the Democratic president less than two months into his administration.

Most noticeable to many Americans are provisions providing up to $1,400 United States in direct payments, some of which could begin landing in bank accounts this weekend, and extending $300 weekly emergency unemployment benefits into early September. The bill passed without a single vote from Republicans, who complained the price tag was too high. And as of last week, there were still 9.5 million fewer jobs in the economy than at this time previous year.

The president sees the light at the end of the tunnel being July 4th if we all continue to do our part and remain vigilant in battling Covid-19.

Biden will discuss the benefits of the pandemic relief bill during trips to Pennsylvania and Georgia next week.

As states ramped up their rollout of the vaccine, some have rescinded their COVID-19 safety protocols.

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