President Biden today announced that the nation has administered its 200 millionth COVID-19 vaccine dose, a milestone reached earlier than projected when vaccines were first authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration.

In reiterating that all Americans over the age of 16 are now eligible to be vaccinated, Biden urged employers to take advantage of a new tax credit that would enable employees to take paid time off to be vaccinated and recover from their vaccination.
