Biden per delineare un piano per somministrare i vaccini Covid-19 agli americani venerdì

President-elect Joe Biden will outline his plan to administer Covid-19 vaccines to the US population on Friday at an event in Wilmington, Delaware, secondo il suo team di transizione.

Biden has said his first priority when he takes office next week is to vaccinate Americans against the virus as the pandemic continues to devastate the nation. The President-elect has pledged to administer 100 million Covid-19 vaccine shots, enough to cover 50 million Americans with the vaccines that require two doses, in his first 100 giorni in carica.
The President-elect on Thursday outlined a $ 1.9 trillion emergency legislative package to fund his nationwide vaccination effort and provide direct economic relief to Americans who are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Il Piano di salvataggio americano calls for investing $ 20 billion in a national vaccination program, including launching community vaccination centers around the country and mobile units in difficult-to-reach areas. It would also increase federal support to vaccinate Medicaid enrollees.
The proposal also includes $ 1,400 controlli dello stimolo, more aid for the unemployed, those facing food shortages and those facing eviction. It includes more money for child care and child tax credits, additional support for small businesses, governi statali e locali, and increased funding for vaccinations and testing.
The President-elect on Thursday did not detail how he plans to move this massive proposal through Congress, in which Democrats will have narrow House and Senate majorities, but both congressional Democratic leaders voiced support for the proposal and pledged to help turn it into law.
Biden will aim to release nearly every available dose of the coronavirus vaccine when he takes office, CNN previously segnalato. The Trump administration’s strategy originally was to hold back half of US vaccine production to ensure second doses are available, but it has since reversed course and said it would distribute reserved second doses immediately, effectively adopting Biden’s approach after disparaging it.
Biden’s presidential transition team on Friday announced that Dr. David Kessler, a former head of the US Food and Drug Administration, would lead federal Covid-19 vaccine efforts for the incoming administration. Kessler will help lead Operation Warp Speed, the federal government’s vaccine program that began under President Donald Trump, to speed up vaccine development and distribution.
Più di 388,700 Americans have died from the virus as of Friday morning, secondo la Johns Hopkins University. Di 11.1 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered to Americans so far, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
