Without Biden’s Vaccination Program, a Million and a Half Americans would have died in 2021 and 12 mn would have been Hospitalized

President Biden is not getting due credit for his incredible feat of vaccinating 200 million Americans. If the other eligible tens of millions had followed suit, the pandemic would have subsided in this country. The Commonwealth Fund finds that without Biden’s vaccination drive, a million and a half Americans would have died this year. As it was, 400,000 died. But there would have been 1.1 million more if Biden had not swung into action. That would have been 21,000 deaths a day. The worst actual one-day total, in January 2021, was 4,000, but that was before the delta variant, which was twice* as transmissible and twice as deadly as alpha.
