All American adults will be eligible for a vaccine by 1 May, Biden says


Joe Biden has said that all American adults will be eligible for a vaccine by 1 May.

In his first primetime address to the nation as US president, Mr Biden said his goal is to get the country “closer to normal” by 4 July, so Americans can celebrate Independence Day with their loved ones.

He also announced that 4,000 active troops will be deployed to support vaccination efforts – and medical students, midwives, veterinarians and dentists will be allowed to deliver jabs.

Almost 530,000 Americans have died from coronavirus over the past year – and millions more have fallen ill.

Speaking from the East Room of the White House, Mr Biden added: “We all lost something, a collective suffering, a collective sacrifice.”
