Meanwhile, President Joe Biden has brought forward to 19 April the date by which all American adults will be eligible for a Covid vaccine.
Bidenannounced the target early last month and directed federal resources toward achieving it, but said Tuesday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that about 80% of teachers, school staff and childcare workers had received a shot. "We're still in a life and death race against this virus", Biden said in remarks at the White House.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki spoke to reporters on Tuesday about the vaccine availability.
But he expressed hope that his Tuesday announcement, that every adult will be eligible by April 19 to sign up and get in a virtual line to be vaccinated, will help expand access and distribution of the vaccine. However, the country is about to hit 150 million shots delivered, and Biden will announce what appears to be an attainable goal of 200 million vaccinations in his first 100 days.
There appeared to be some confusion over whether Trump meant all Americans would be vaccinated by April or could get vaccinated by then, but CNN's lead sentence appeared to suggest Trump meant the latter in terms of supply.
Psaki said that the strongest interest comes from private businesses looking to reopen sites where "there are large swaths of people", like in stadiums or theaters. However, both Moderna and Pfizer produced two-dose shots as part of the program that began getting distributed in December, although Trump fell short of his goal of 20 million vaccinations distributed by the end of 2020.
Biden is also expected to announce that the US administered 150 million doses in his first 75 days in office, a pace that puts him on track to surpassing his previously stated goal of reaching 200 million doses in his first 100 days.
Seniors still waiting to be vaccinated should seek appointments quickly "because the lines are going to become longer" after April 19, Psaki said.
The White House said Monday that almost 1 in 3 Americans and over 40% of adults have received at least one shot, and almost 1 in 4 adults is fully vaccinated. Seventy-five percent of people older than 65 have now received at least one shot, and more than 55% of them are fully vaccinated.
Mr Arradondo agreed and acknowledged that this must also be taken into consideration when officers decide to use force. He asked whether officers need to take the actions of a crowd into account, and Arradondo agreed.
