Washington: President Joe Biden said Thursday that his goal of getting 100 million vaccine doses administered in his first 100 days in office will be met on Friday, far in advance of the original target.

“I’m proud to announce tomorrow..., we will have met my goal,” he said in a White House speech.

Biden initially said he wanted 100 million doses administered within 100 days but that target will have been reached in less than 60.
