Biden Says Things Will Get Back to Normal Once “97% or 98%” of People Are Vaccinated Against COVID

President Joe Biden was asked while getting a COVID-19 booster shot how many more Americans need to be vaccinated in order to get the country back to the pre-COVID style of living.
“I think we get the vast majority…97%, 98%. I think we’ll get awful close. But I’m not a scientist. I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can’t go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem,” Biden said.
Biden further pledged the United States will continue funding efforts to get other parts of the world COVID-19 vaccines as the U.S. is now rolling out booster shots.
“We are helping. We’re doing more than every other nation in the world combined. We’re going to have well over billion, one million shots. We’ll continue going. We’ll do our part. We’ve also given a great deal of funding to COVAX, which is the vehicle that does this, so we have plenty, plenty of opportunities to make sure we get everyone in the world. We played our part, the largest part in the world, of getting everyone vaccinated.”
