Within the scope of efforts to combat Corona virus (Covid-19), many countries, including the USA, continue their vaccination campaigns uninterruptedly.

Stating that the main goal of his administration was to administer 100 million vaccines in the first 100 days on duty, Biden said, “When I took office, it would take more than 220 days, almost seven, 7, 7.5 months to reach the number of vaccinations at the pace we progressed. Instead of marking this milestone in April, at the earliest September. We could not see it until the beginning of the month. I am proud of the work my administration has done to vaccinate the Americans. But more than that, I am proud of the people of the USA, “he noted.
“NO US SHOULD LOSE EVEN $ 1 TO BE A VACCINE”
Calling on US companies to allow their employees to vaccinate, President Biden announced a tax credit that could compensate for the costs of those leaves. Stating that many working citizens in the vaccination campaign were concerned about not getting permission from the companies they work for, Biden said, “One of the concerns I hear from many Americans when switching to the vaccination campaign focusing on working-age adults is that they do not get permission to get vaccinated or they feel a little bad after being vaccinated. it was to lose, “he said.

Biden pointed to 2 businesses that are doing their part to encourage vaccinations, including Kroger’s offering of $ 100 for vaccinations to their employees and a small hair salon in Ohio where the receptionist helps their clients schedule appointments. To make sure that “the policy costs nothing to small or medium-sized businesses with less than 500 employees,” Biden announced, the US Revenue Service (IRS) will publish instructions on how employers can get reimbursement for their costs in providing vaccinated employees with paid leave. Biden said, “This repayment, which comes with a tax payment, is provided by the program I started in the Covid-19 Support Package. Again, for this reason, every employee needs to take paid leave to be vaccinated. Businesses can provide this without damaging the final profit-loss household. he said.
“DO NOT WAIT MORE TO GET A VACCINE”
In his speech, President Biden, who encouraged all Americans to vaccinate to protect themselves against Covid-19, said, “To put it simply, if you are waiting for your turn, do not wait any longer. Now is the time for everyone over the age of 16 to get vaccinated.”
Pointing out that the majority of US adults are unvaccinated, Biden outlined 2 reasons why all Americans should be vaccinated, saying that they are saving lives and protecting communities. Biden also stated that vaccines will be available in about 40,000 pharmacies across the country.

Biden said, “We are in the process of doing this. We are looking at what to do with some vaccines that we do not use. We want to make sure their shipment is safe and we hope to be able to provide assistance and value to countries around the world. We talked to our neighbors. Canadian Prime Minister. We helped a little more there. We will try to help a little more, but we do.” “There are other countries. I am sure we can help to include Central America – but this is in progress. We don’t have enough confidence to send it abroad now. I hope we can do that.”
“A USA MUCH CLOSER TO THE NORMAL LIFE WE LEFT BACK”
Biden pointed out that as long as the Americans remain vigilant and continue to be vaccinated against Covid-19, the United States is on track to achieve its goal of getting together on a small scale on July 4, Independence Day.
