US surpasses Biden's goal of 100M vaccinations in 100 days

The U.S. surpassed President Joe Biden's goal of admistering 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines in his first 100 days in office, the White House said March 19, the president's 58th day in office. 

The president said during a March 19 news conference that the U.S. may now be able to double that goal, Politico reported. 

"We hope we can keep the pace. We met the goal, and we’re continuing to move forward," President Biden said. 

Including shots administered during the end of former President Donald Trump's administration, roughly 124 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to CDC data

The U.S. is now pacing at about 2.5 million vaccines administered daily, according to Politico. Nearly 30 percent of U.S. adults have received at least one dose.

"These milestones are significant accomplishments, but we have much more to do — much more to do," the president said, according to CBS News.
