Biden Doubles Vaccination Goal and It Looks Achievable

2 min read

Having reached 100 million vaccinations in just 59 days in office, Joe Biden is now calling for 200 million vaccinations in his first 100 days, which will be April 30.

The Center for Disease Control reports 136.7 million total vaccinations for US residents for yesterday, so reaching the goal will require about 83.3 million vaccinations in the 36 remaining days. (About 20 million vaccinations happened before Biden’s inauguration.) We are currently averaging about 2.5 million vaccinations per day and Biden’s goal will require 2.3 million a day. 

The rollout of Johnson and Johnson’s vaccine has been slower than expected. The company had forecast delivery of 20 million doses by March 31. The CDC reports only 4.9 million delivered as of yesterday.

While distribution of Johnson and Johnson’s single-shot coronavirus vaccine hit an initial snag, the Biden Administration announced on Friday that the company will deliver 11 million doses of the vaccine next week.

Looking at the delivery of vaccine doses rather than actual vaccinations, the White House is saying 27 million vaccine doses from J&J, Pfizer, and Moderna should be delivered next week. Added to the 177.5 million that have already been delivered that brings us to about 204.5 million doses. Today and tomorrow’s deliveries may well add 5.5 million bringing us to 210 million doses. (Assuming no huge amounts of the vaccines have been lost or gone to waste.) The 220 million shots needed to fulfill Biden’s goal should be delivered before April 8. It could be sooner in J&J really ramps it up.

As for vaccinations already made, The CDC reports nearly 90 million have received at least one shot or 27% of the total US population. Considering only adults old enough to get the sticks, the number is 34.6%. More than 71% of Americans over the age of 65 have received one or more doses.

For the last couple of weeks, almost 1% of the US adult population has been receiving vaccine stabs daily.
