Biden set to announce he's moving deadline for all US adults to be eligible for Covid vaccine to April 19

(CNN)President Joe Biden plans to announce Tuesday that he is moving up his deadline for states to make all American adults eligible for a coronavirus vaccine by almost two weeks.

With all states having opened eligibility to the public or at least having announced when they plan to do so, Biden will announce that every adult in the country will be eligible to be vaccinated by April 19, according to an administration official, instead of Biden's original deadline of May 1.

Biden announced last week that 90% of adults will be eligible to get a coronavirus vaccine by April 19, as well as have a vaccination site within five miles of where they live. Biden said the number of pharmacies participating in the federal pharmacy vaccination program was increasing from the current 17,000 locations to 40,000.

CNN has previously reported that all 50 states have announced when they plan to open vaccinations to everyone who is eligible, if they haven't done so already. Oregon, South Dakota, Nebraska, Hawaii and New Jersey all currently plan to open eligibility by May 1, so it remains to be seen how Biden's announcement changes those states' plans. Biden is expected to credit the governors' effort to meet his May 1 deadline for this change.

7. I thank him for this. The age queues are sort of a joke now.

So many vaccination centers have not enforced them. 90% of the young people I work with have now jumped the queue ahead of me. They ask me when I'm getting vaccinated and I'm like, we're not even eligible for 9 more days here. They don't give a shit. Sad.

9. Someone better tell my QAnon wannabe Governor Greg Gianforte to get it done.

And to stop trying to derail the recovery with "opening" the state conspiracy BS.

Bad enough he's into open carry, and just diagnosed COVID positive.
