President Joe Biden is poised to meet his goal of delivering 100 million Covid-19 vaccine shots in his first 100 days in office as early as Thursday, a senior administration official told NBC News.
The president reached the goal ahead of schedule, the official said. Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Jan. 20, about 57 days ago. Biden said last week that he expected to hit the goal on day 60.
Biden is scheduled to make an announcement on the “state of vaccinations” later Thursday where he may discuss the milestone.
