President Joe Biden’s original goal of 100 million Covid vaccinations in 100 days was exceeded last month leading him to call for 200 million in 100 days. Today is the day we reach that goal, eight days early. This is Biden’s second huge win after the passage of the Covid Relief Bill whose funding help make the rapid pace of vaccinations possible

As of yesterday, the CDC reports 218.9 vaccinations have been administered since December 10. We had to reach 220.1 million to reach Biden’s goal since 20.1 million occurred before January 20.  The US should be at 222 million as of today. Among adult Americans, 52% have received at least one jab while 40.9% of the total US population has the same status. Looking at US residents over 65 years, 80.7% having taken at least one shot in the arm.

Officials are also closing down sites in Georgia, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, among other states, and a planned mass-vaccine clinic in Ohio was canceled this week because of “decreased demand,” Forbes reported.

Buffalo Bills to Require Vaccinations…

International Vaccine Tourism May Take Off…

Texas has apparently become a particularly popular destination for vaccine tourists, likely because the state doesn’t require proof of residency for receiving a vaccination. University Health in San Antonio—where María received her vaccination—now allows patients to register for their jabs with a Canadian or Mexican address. With U.S. customs, Maria advises people to be truthful about their motives for their trip, saying, “The problem is when you lie and tell them, ‘I’m not here for a vaccination.’”…

Mexico’s vaccination campaign only arrived in Square’s hometown last week. Lines of seniors formed 24 hours in advance he said and the line of cars for the drive-through vaccines, he said, “was the longest I’ve ever seen.”
