President Biden receives COVID-19 booster shot | USA TODAY
President Biden delivers remarks, receives a COVID-19 booster shot in line with the CDC’s and FDA’s recommendations
U.S. health authorities say they are confident there is enough vaccine available for older Americans seeking booster shots and young children for whom initial doses are expected to be approved soon.
A spike in demand is expected following last week’s federal recommendation on booster shots, but more than 40 million doses of coronavirus vaccines are now available, experts say.
More than 70 million Americans remain unvaccinated despite the enticement of lottery prizes, free food or gifts and pleas from exhausted health care workers as the average number of deaths per day climbed to about 2,000 in recent weeks.
