During a speech today, President-elect Joe Biden made a series of announcements about his administration’s plans to tackle the coronavirus pandemic and to speed up vaccine distribution, with the goal of delivering 100 million doses during his first 100 days in office.
Here are the five initiatives he laid out in order to achieve the ambitious target:
Expand eligibility for the Covid-19 vaccine to include adults aged 65 and older as well as essential workers outside of the health care industry, such as teachers and grocery store workers. Biden acknowledged that there currently aren’t enough doses available to vaccinate all Americans in this group. Instead, the goal is the faster deployment of

the millions of doses that are available but still sitting in freezers. A similar announcement was made earlier this week by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Set up thousands of community vaccination centers with the help of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. A focus will be on equity, and locations will be prioritized in minority and rural communities. These centers will be staffed by first responders, military medical personnel, retired doctors, and others who will be trained in vaccine administration. Biden says states will be reimbursed for many of the costs associated with these centers, including personnel and supplies.
Work with pharmacies, both nationwide chains and local independent stores, to get the vaccine into as many arms as quickly as possible. The goal will be an easy appointment system to prevent lines and wait times.
Ramp up vaccine supply using government resources. Biden will use the Defense Production Act to work with industry to accelerate the manufacturing of materials needed to administer the vaccine. The administration also plans to release vaccine doses as soon as they become available, keeping only a small number in reserve. However, Biden says they are not deviating from the Food and Drug Administration’s recommended dosing schedule that people receive a second shot three to four weeks after the first. The Trump administration announced a similar strategy this week, although a report by the Washington Post revealed that no such vaccine reserves exist.
Biden pledged transparency to the public about the pandemic and said that the administration will lead with science and scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health, which will be free from political influence. He also addressed problems with vaccine hesitancy and said that the administration will launch a massive public education campaign to rebuild trust in the vaccine. He specifically emphasized the warranted mistrust by Black, Brown, and Native communities of the medical establishment as well as the disproportionate toll the pandemic has taken on these populations, with death rates three times that of white Americans.
Biden also announced a sixth goal of getting all Americans to mask up for 100 days. He plans to issue an executive order to instill a mask mandate where he has the authority to do so, such as on federal property and interstate travel. He’ll also work with mayors and governors to require masks in cities and states.
The president-elect acknowledged that these goals are ambitious and will take time and that the pandemic will get even worse before it improves. There will also undoubtedly be stumbles along the way, not the least of which is to get funding for the initiatives from Congress. But, he said, “I’m convinced we can get it done, and this is a time to set big goals and pursue them with courage and conviction because the health of the nation is literally at stake.”
