President Biden is directing all states to make sure that all Americans get the vaccine no later than May 1st, that means these conditions that you’ve seen so far on age limits or whether or not you have a health precondition they want those to fall away by no later than May 1st, and the White House is saying Biden has the authority to direct states through the health and human services department
If vaccines become readily available for all Americans by May 1st and it helps to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, there’s a decent chance we can all be hanging out and drinking beers with one another on the 4th of July.
