There’s now a third safe COVID-19 vaccine, so we asked Dr. Fauci to walk us through the newly-authorized Johnson & Johnson option: The way it works, it’s effectiveness, and whether he’d take it himself. (The answer is yes!)
After a rigorous scientific review process, the FDA issued an emergency use authorization for a third safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. It’s exciting news for all Americans, and an encouraging development in our efforts to bring an end to the crisis.
I spoke with @NASA Astronaut and @USNavy Commander Victor J. Glover aboard the International Space Station. @AstroVicGlover is making history as the first African American on a long-duration space mission. He is a reminder of what's possible when we dream big and think big.
The House has voted to pass the American Rescue Plan. This is a critical step towards getting relief to those who need it, getting people vaccinated, getting kids back to school, and getting Americans back to work. The Senate should take quick action to move the bill forward.
I spoke with President Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of the Congo about good governance and reforms, COVID-19, Ebola, trade, girls’ education, the environment, and economic opportunity. We agreed to deepen our partnership to advance the shared interests of our people.
Today I spoke with Prime Minister Frederiksen of Denmark. We discussed several issues including, COVID-19, NATO, climate change, China, and the importance of women to our economies. @POTUS and I look forward to working with Denmark to deliver a greener, more secure future.
She helped us propel the dawn of the Space Age through her work as a ‘human computer’. Now, our headquarters building will be named in her honor. Get to know Mary W. Jackson, our first African American female engineer:
Mary W. Jackson, one of the ‘Hidden Figures,’ was critical to getting American astronauts into space. She broke barriers at home, persevered, and inspired the next generation of engineers, scientists, and explorers. I’m pleased to see @NASA’s DC headquarters named in her honor.
Yesterday, the 50 millionth vaccination was administered since @POTUS and I took office. This is weeks ahead of schedule and we are going to continue making progress every day. So keep wearing a mask, keep social distancing, and get vaccinated when it’s your turn.
This afternoon I swore in Jennifer Granholm as the Secretary of Energy. @SecGranholm's commitment to creating good-paying American jobs and addressing the climate crisis will be essential as we shift towards a clean energy economy. Congratulations Secretary.
We’re proud to welcome a Vice President to #CityLab2021 for the first time. @VP Kamala Harris will join this year’s Summit as a keynote speaker to share how the federal government can team up with local governments to address our most urgent challenges.
Looking forward to joining #CityLab2021 to discuss the big challenges and the big opportunities facing local governments – and why we need Congress to pass the American Rescue Plan, so that local governments have the resources they need to get through this pandemic.
Today I visited a Giant pharmacy in Washington D.C., where local residents are getting vaccinated. It’s one of more than 7,000 pharmacies administering millions of vaccines to Americans directly in their communities. We're making progress - when it's your turn, get vaccinated.
Congratulations to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack on his swearing-in. During this critical time, @SecVilsack brings first-hand experience to strengthening our rural economy, building better food systems while combatting climate change, and helping end hunger.
Today I swore in Linda Thomas-Greenfield as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. An esteemed foreign service officer with decades of experience, she will be a champion for U.S. diplomacy at the UN and around the world. Congratulations @USAmbUN on this historic moment.
As part of our plan to change the course of this pandemic, we will deliver more than 25 million masks to more than 1,300 community health centers across the country, as well as 60,000 food pantries and soup kitchens to reach some of our nation's most vulnerable populations.
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.
