Biden addresses the covid vaccine updates for the United States


Biden addresses the covid vaccine updates for the United States

President Joe Biden got an updated COVID-19 booster on Tuesday as he unveiled his administration’s plan to promote the updated shots.

The updated booster shots became available early last month, and in the nearly six weeks since, a small percentage of Americans have gotten the shot. The shots were updated to include protection against the omicron variant of COVID-19.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 20 million Americans have gotten an updated COVID-19 booster, meaning less than 8% of those ages 12 and up are up-to-date on their shots.

“Get vaccinated. Update your COVID vaccine. It’s incredibly effective, but the truth is, not enough people are getting it. We’ve got to change that so we can all have a safe and healthy holiday season,” Biden said.

Overall, about 216 million Americans are eligible for the shot as those who have completed their primary series can get the updated booster.

The White House said the government will release advertisements in many local markets to “highlight the importance of getting the updated vaccine to protect the ones we love and the protection the updated COVID-19 vaccines offer against omicron.” The government will also host pop-up clinics at venues such as Head Start locations, nursing homes, and community health centers around the country.
