Will ensure free Covid-19 vaccine is distributed quickly to all Americans: Joe Biden

The Biden-Harris administration will ensure that every American gets free Covid-19 vaccine, said US President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday. Reiterating his promise made during the election campaign, Joe Biden in a tweet said, "We are going to ensure the vaccine is distributed quickly, equitably, and free of charge to every American." He added that getting all Americans vaccinated against Covid-19 will be the focus of his administration. "Getting America vaccinated will be one of the greatest operational challenges we have ever faced, but my administration will spare no effort to get it done," Joe Biden said.

Earlier in the day, Joe Biden received the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine and urged the people to take the vaccine when their turn comes. "Folks, I just received the second dose of my Covid-19 vaccine -- and just like the first dose, it was safe, quick, and painless. I urge everyone to get vaccinated once it's your turn. Because only together can we save lives and beat this virus," he said in a tweet. US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris too said controlling the pandemic will be the main focus of the Biden-Harris administration in its first 100 days. "The first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration will focus on getting control of this pandemic-ensuring vaccines are distributed equitably and free for all," Kamala Harris tweeted.
