Biden: Vaccine rollout has been a dismal failure

United States President-elect Joe Biden said that the coronavirus vaccine rollout in the US has been "a dismal failure thus far." He promised that he will unveil a plan on Friday for administering 100 million vaccines in his first 100 days in office.

Biden also reiterated the main points of his $1.9 trillion stimulus plan, which will include an additional one-time payment of $1400 to all eligible Americans, as well as extending and increasing federal unemployment benefits and providing funding for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. He called for "more action, more bipartisanship" and promised that the stimulus will "prevent long-term economic damage."
