WH: Biden admin doubled vaccine acceptance in US

The willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine among the United States citizens has doubled since Joe Biden took office as the US president, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki (pictured) said on Friday.

During a daily press conference, she asserted that the percentage of those ready to get inoculated was "in the thirties" during the previous administration. Psaki claimed that the current administration has been able to "influence a whole lot of people" in a "relatively short amount of time."

Psaki also lauded the improvements in the vaccine-shipping process, noting that the US has delivered a "record number of doses to a record number of countries" during the week.
