Wearing a mask is one of the most important things we can do to protect others and change the course of this pandemic. That’s why over the next few weeks, we’re delivering over 25 million masks to community health centers, food pantries, and soup kitchens across the country.
Yesterday, @POTUS and I met with Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau to discuss our close partnership. We look forward to working closely together to combat COVID-19, fight climate change, advance diversity and inclusion, and prioritize our security and defense.
This afternoon, we announced that we’re increasing the weekly vaccine supply to states to 14.5 million doses starting next week, up from the 13.5 million we announced last week.
That's an increase of almost 70% since we took office just over a month ago.
Millions of small businesses – especially those owned by women and people of color – are struggling to keep their doors open. Today, our Administration announced key changes to the Paycheck Protection Program that will help get relief to more small businesses across the country.
If there’s one message I want to cut through to everyone in this country, it’s this: The vaccines are safe.
For yourself, your family, your community, our country — take the vaccine when it’s your turn and available. That’s how we’ll beat this pandemic.
Jill and I are keeping Texas, Oklahoma, and other impacted states in our prayers. I’ve declared states of emergency, authorized FEMA to provide generators and supplies, and am ready to fulfill additional requests. Please heed the instructions of local officials and stay safe.
Starting this week, our Administration is:
- Increasing weekly vaccine shipments to states to 13.5 million doses — a 57% increase from when I took office.
- Doubling our direct shipments to local pharmacies.
We’re working hard to get America vaccinated quickly.
People in this country are hurting right now – especially women. About 2.5 million women have lost their jobs or dropped out of the workforce during the pandemic.
The American Rescue Plan addresses these urgent challenges.
It's time for Congress to act.
During a @POTUS visit to my office (his old office), he showed me where - on Valentine’s Day in 2009 - @FLOTUS wrote “Joe loves Jill” on all the window panes. I love that story! To @POTUS, @FLOTUS, and all Americans: #HappyValentines
