Watch live: Biden speaks on state of vaccinations


President Biden is speaking from the White House on the state of vaccinations Thursday, as the nation nears his goal of 100 million shots in his first 100 days. 

The president has said the U.S. will have enough vaccine supply to cover all American adults by the end of May, and has urged states to open eligibility up to all adults by May 1. 

The U.S. was already vaccinating roughly 1 million people a day when former President Trump left office and Mr. Biden took office.

The U.S. already has three vaccines that are being used under emergency use authorizations from Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
