On Tuesday, April 6, US President Joe Biden climbed the COVID-19 vaccination eligibility in USA focus for all American grown-ups to April 19 yet cautioned that with new infection variations spreading "we're as yet in a life-and-death situation" with the Covid-19 virus. Biden guided states to broaden the vaccination eligibility in USA for individuals of 18 or more years of age by April 19, fourteen days sooner than the May 1 cut-off time that he had reported already. No COVID-19 antibody is approved at this point for youngsters under 16, in spite of the fact that testing is in progress. Several states in the country had previously stated that they would maker the vaccines available for every adult by the new deadline.

Joe Biden, in one of his recent speeches at the White House, said, “What we do now is going to determine how many people we`ll save or lose in the month of April and May, and June, before we get to July Fourth." He further added that over 80 percent of the teaching and other school staff had already received their first jabs of the vaccine, but due to the mutating of new variants, infections in the USA are rapidly increasing. He said, “We aren’t at the finish line. We still have a lot of work to do. We’re still in a life-or-death race."

The efficiency and supply of receiving the shots into arms have risen rapidly so as to get a maximum number of people vaccinated and making them immune against the newly developed strains and mutants of the coronavirus, which are even more contagious and dangerous. The chief of staff at the White House uploaded a tweet on his official Twitter handle, which said, “Governors - Democrats and Republicans - are working with (the White House COVID-19 response team) to accelerate the vaccination program."
