On this #InternationalWomensDay, I want to honor the women who for over a year have gone to work, often risking their health, to nourish and protect us—the doctors, nurses, teachers, grocery store workers, first responders, members of the military, scientists, and many more.
Last week, the Biden-Harris Administration:
- Began administering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine
- Secured enough vaccines for every American by the end of May
- Increased weekly vaccine shipments to 18 million doses
We’re working hard to quickly vaccinate America.
The legacy of Selma is that while nothing can stop free people from exercising their most sacred power as citizens, there are those who will do anything they can to take that power away. As we reflect on the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, we must stay focused on the work ahead.
When I took office, I promised help was on the way. Thanks to @SenSchumer and Senate Democrats, we've taken one more giant step forward in delivering on that promise.
I hope the American Rescue Plan receives a quick passage in the House so it can be sent to my desk to be signed.
Tammy is a health care professional and single mother of four children — and like countless other Americans, she’s struggling to get through this crisis. President Biden called to discuss the American Rescue Plan and how it will provide direct relief to families like hers.
With the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, we now have a third safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine being administered across the country. I’m grateful these folks are stepping up and getting vaccinated — and I encourage every American to do the same when it’s their turn.
The right to vote is sacred and fundamental — and H.R. 1 is urgently needed to protect that right, to safeguard the integrity of our elections, and to repair and strengthen our democracy. I look forward to signing it into law after it has passed through the legislative process.
We need a Department of Education that is focused first and foremost on our students. My commitment to you is that the agency I lead will be a service agency and our mission will be the success of America's students.
An educator is leading the Department of Education once again. I look forward to working with @SecCardona to safely reopen our nation’s schools and ensure every child has access to a quality education.
Today, I am directing every state to prioritize educators for vaccination. We want every educator, school staff member, and child-care worker to receive at least one shot by the end of this month.
It’s time to treat in-person learning like the essential service that it is.
Today, President Biden announced a breakthrough collaboration between Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and the federal government to ramp up vaccine production. Because of these efforts, we will have enough vaccines for every American by the end of May–two months earlier than expected.
A campaign for everyone who’s been knocked down or counted out.
A campaign that brought Americans together of every race, ethnicity, gender, economic station, and party.
A year ago, the people of South Carolina lifted that campaign on their shoulders.
The more people that get vaccinated, the faster we will beat this pandemic. That’s why one of my first goals is to administer 100 million COVID-19 vaccine shots in our first 100 days.
I’m proud to say we’re over halfway to our goal and weeks ahead of schedule.
Yesterday I traveled to Texas to visit an emergency operations center, food bank, and vaccination site. Each stop represented our nation at its best—people coming together to help their fellow Americans. It’s a reminder that there’s nothing we can’t do when we do it together.
