Jill Biden visits Southwest US amid vaccine push

 

April 22, 2021



ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — First lady Jill Biden is kicking off a three-day, two-state visit to the U.S. Southwest with a tour of a vaccination clinic in New Mexico, where early efforts to get people registered for shots helped to propel the state’s standing as a national leader in vaccine distribution.

Wednesday’s tour comes as the nation is set to meet President Joe Biden’s goal of administering 200 million coronavirus doses in his first 100 days in office. The president is expected to outline his administration’s latest plans to motivate more Americans to get shots as demand diminishes.

In New Mexico, nearly 39 percent of residents 16 and older have been fully vaccinated. While eligibility was expanded earlier this month as part of the Biden administration’s push, the focus is now shifting to younger people ahead of the summer break.
