President Joe Biden, who will take office in the United States on Wednesday, is working to quell the coronavirus pandemic raging in the country, including by setting up thousands of local vaccination centers and mobile clinics.
Biden announced his plans late Friday in Finnish time.
Biden also plans to ask Congress for funding to get hundreds of thousands of health workers on anti-virus missions, CNN news channel said.
Employees would be hired, for example, to vaccinate citizens and trace infections.
One hundred thousand new employees would almost triple the number of employees in those positions.
To date, more than 12 million doses of vaccine have been administered in the United States, with a population of approximately 330 million.
There are about 10.6 million people vaccinated, and more than 1.6 million people have received the required two doses of the vaccine, the country’s disease center, the CDC said on Friday.
Biden has said he wants one hundred million Americans to get the vaccine in the first hundred days of his season.
This would significantly speed up the current rate of vaccination.
“This will be one of the most challenging operational efforts our country has ever made,” Biden said on Friday.
To date, approximately 23.5 million coronavirus infections and nearly 400,000 virus-related deaths have been reported in the United States, according to a Johns Hopkins University follow-up.
The United States has the highest number of infections and virus-related deaths in the world.
On Friday, the grim boundary of two million coronary deaths worldwide was exceeded.
Pfizer supports Biden's plan, vaccines reserved for the United States
Albert Boula, CEO of U.S. pharmaceutical company Pfizer, says he supports Biden’s plan to speed up the delivery of vaccines, CNN says.
The United States has signed a procurement agreement for 200 million doses of Pfizer and German Biontech coronary vaccine.
On Friday, it was reported that Pfizer and Biontech corona vaccines will be available in smaller batches in Europe in January-February.
This is due to Pfizer's delivery difficulties, which are said to be due to expansion and restructuring.
There has also been criticism in the United States that vaccines are not given fast enough.
More than 31 million doses of the vaccine have been delivered to the United States to date, the CDC reports.
The administration of outgoing President Donald Trump said earlier this week that it has decided to distribute all available and stored doses of vaccine that were saved as booster vaccines.
However, according to CNN official sources, many of the vaccines in stock were already distributed last year, and in fact there is no longer a stockpile for the second batch.
However, Pfizer tells CNN that the company has booster vaccines reserved and ready to ship to the United States.
