United States President Joe Biden lauded on Wednesday the accomplishments of the US health workers who managed to inoculate 200 million people during the 92 days of his presidency but also went on to warn that there is "a long way to go" before the pandemic is put under control.

Delivering remarks on the COVID-19 response and the state of vaccinations, Biden unveiled that the 200 millionth shot will be administered tomorrow, adding that all Americans above the age of 16 are now eligible "for a free vaccine."

"Too many lives [have been] lost," Biden noted, and claimed that his administration's most significant achievement is the "dramatic decline" of deaths in the population above 65.
