In his first prime-time address, President Biden acknowledged the deaths of more than 531-thousand Americans and announced every American will have a chance to get a vaccine by the end of May. This week, the U.S. administration ordered an additional 100-million doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine to increase vaccine supplies. President Biden also signed into law a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, to help Americans out of work and struggling financially. The U.S President and Vice President joined members of Congress in the Rose Garden Friday to celebrate the historic achievement.
