For the United States, this is a big step in the fight against Coronavirus. The President of the United States, Joe Biden, must announce this Tuesday, April 6 that all adults will be eligible for vaccination for April 19.
This information, revealed to the channel CNN by a government official, it would mean an advance of ten days above the previously set objective. In fact, the Democrat had previously promised that 90% of adults would be eligible on that date. With this new announcement, he suggests that ultimately, anyone can get vaccinated, regardless of criteria related to age or medical history.
Actually, three vaccinations are allowed “urgently” in the United States, recalls AFP; first of all, that of Johnson and Johnson, which requires only one dose per person, and then those of Modern and Pfizer / BioNTech, which are administered in two doses.
In people over 65, 1 in 2 people is vaccinated
The country has given a great boost to its vaccination campaign, according to the authorities, the more than three million injections a day, achieved on average during the last seven days. In the United States, more than 107 million people have received at least one dose of one of the vaccines on the market, in the fight against Coronavirus. Information compiled from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is the nation’s leading federal public health agency.
On the other hand, 62 million Americans are fully immunized, which means one out of every two people, in populations over 65 years of age.
Several states have lifted some sanitary restrictions, but the country is experiencing a increased pollution. “Cases are increasing nationally and we are seeing it predominantly in young adults,” Rochelle Walensky, CDC director, told reporters on Monday (April 5). The age group would care 18-24 years, and these contaminations would be “linked to extracurricular activities and sports”.
