Biden pledges ‘enough vaccine by July’

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NBC News) – President Biden traveled to Michigan Friday to tour a Pfizer vaccine plant amid hopeful news the shots may be highly effective after one dose and may no longer require ultra-cold storage.

If approved, both changes could speed the distribution of the desperately needed vaccine.

“We’re now on track to have enough vaccine supply for all Americans by the end of July,” Mr. Biden said.

Reversing his predecessor, he signaled the U.S. will no longer go it alone on international affairs.

“Democracy doesn’t happen by accident, we have to defend it, fight for it, strengthen it, renew it,” Mr. Biden said.
