On February 15, my Administration opened a special enrollment period for health insurance and more than 200,000 Americans have already gotten covered. It’s an encouraging sign, but we have further to go. Head to https://t.co/gRX1fGFEzj before May 15 to get covered.
Our nation is facing two major crises — an economic crisis brought on by a public health crisis. President Biden is calling on the Senate to address both by passing the American Rescue Plan immediately.
Today, I am directing every state to prioritize educators for vaccination. We want every educator, school staff member, and child-care worker to receive at least one shot by the end of this month.
It’s time to treat in-person learning like the essential service that it is.
About 2.5 million women have been forced out of the workforce during the pandemic. The American Rescue Plan provides relief to women and families with $1,400 payments, a $3,000 child tax credit, and funding to safely reopen schools and child care. It’s time for the Senate to act.
There is dignity in all work. And when people can join together in unions, free from interference, every worker is more respected and protected. @POTUS and I support union workers and those working to unionize, in Alabama and across America.
A campaign for everyone who’s been knocked down or counted out.
A campaign that brought Americans together of every race, ethnicity, gender, economic station, and party.
A year ago, the people of South Carolina lifted that campaign on their shoulders.
Last week, the Biden-Harris Administration:
- Reached 50 million vaccinations
- Announced the shipment of 25 million masks
- Increased weekly vaccine supply to 14.5 million doses
- Opened vaccination sites across the country
We’re working hard to beat COVID-19.
The House has voted to pass the American Rescue Plan. This is a critical step towards getting relief to those who need it, getting people vaccinated, getting kids back to school, and getting Americans back to work. The Senate should take quick action to move the bill forward.
The week before I took office, 6 million COVID-19 vaccine shots were administered.
This coming week, our Administration will likely administer over 12 million shots.
That’s double the pace in just six weeks.
Yesterday, the 50 millionth vaccination was administered since @POTUS and I took office. This is weeks ahead of schedule and we are going to continue making progress every day. So keep wearing a mask, keep social distancing, and get vaccinated when it’s your turn. https://t.co/8gQOfjTm8y
I believe every American deserves the peace of mind that comes with quality, affordable health care. That’s why we opened a special health insurance enrollment period to ensure everyone can get covered. Head to https://t.co/gRX1fGFEzj to find the plan that works best for you.
Today I visited a Giant pharmacy in Washington D.C., where local residents are getting vaccinated. It’s one of more than 7,000 pharmacies administering millions of vaccines to Americans directly in their communities. We're making progress - when it's your turn, get vaccinated. https://t.co/PoSYcRvCYG
Wearing a mask is one of the most important things we can do to protect others and change the course of this pandemic. That’s why over the next few weeks, we’re delivering over 25 million masks to community health centers, food pantries, and soup kitchens across the country.
Yesterday, @POTUS and I met with Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau to discuss our close partnership. We look forward to working closely together to combat COVID-19, fight climate change, advance diversity and inclusion, and prioritize our security and defense. https://t.co/Z8pePIxrug
This afternoon, we announced that we’re increasing the weekly vaccine supply to states to 14.5 million doses starting next week, up from the 13.5 million we announced last week.
That's an increase of almost 70% since we took office just over a month ago.
If there’s one message I want to cut through to everyone in this country, it’s this: The vaccines are safe.
For yourself, your family, your community, our country — take the vaccine when it’s your turn and available. That’s how we’ll beat this pandemic.
