President Joe Biden has said he is hopeful that America can “mark independence” from Covid-19 on 4 July if people get vaccinated.
In his first primetime address as president, Mr Biden said he would order states to make all adults eligible for vaccinations by 1 May.
Current measures prioritize people by age or health condition.
His speech comes a year to the day the outbreak was classified as a pandemic as half a million Americans have died.
The President said that Mobile units will travel into local communities to provide vaccinations in underserved communities. END
