President Biden Increases U.S. Vaccination Goal to 150 Million Shots in 100 Days

HeadlineJan 26, 2021

President Joe Biden said Monday his administration would increase its COVID-19 vaccination goal — from 100 million shots in the first 100 days to 150 million shots. That’s enough to vaccinate 75 million people, a little less than a quarter of the U.S. population.

Here in New York, health officials have delayed opening COVID-19 mass vaccination sites at the Yankees’ and Mets’ baseball stadiums and on Staten Island due to supply shortages.
