United States is pouring out vaccines and speeding up vaccinations. From today (20th), anyone 16 years of age or older can get the vaccine, and the number of areas that can be vaccinated on the same day is increasing.

Correspondent Kim Soo-hyung reports from Washington.


Four months after the start of the corona vaccination, 130 million people in the United States and about half of the people who can be vaccinated have been vaccinated more than once.

32.5% of those who have completed the two doses.

The U.S. is vaccination at a rate of 3.5 million people a day, and starting today, anyone over the age of 16 can qualify for vaccination across the country.

[Biden/US President: Everyone, we have good news. Starting today, everyone is entitled to get the vaccine. We have enough vaccines. You need to be protected with a vaccine. Please get the vaccine.] At the

beginning, President Biden's appointment was until May 1, but it was about two weeks while pouring the amount of the vaccine.

Even places where vaccinations can be given the same day are emerging one after another.

With very few side effects of blood clots, the Janssen vaccine, whose vaccination was temporarily discontinued, increased the likelihood that the vaccination would be selectively resumed according to sex and age to minimize side effects.

[Vivek Mercy/US Commissioner for Public Health: The decision to resume vaccination will come within a few days. Depending on the results of data analysis, restrictions based on age and gender may be imposed.] The

U.S. State Department has announced that it will increase the number of countries subject to the level 4 warning, which means'travel ban', to 80% worldwide in consideration of the global corona19 risk.
