President Joe Biden on Tuesday called for all U.S. adults to become eligible to receive a coronavirus vaccine starting April 19.

“That doesn’t mean they will get it that day,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki clarified. “It means they can join the line.”

The White House said there will be enough supply to cover every American adult by the end of May, although it will take longer to administer those shots. As of this week, 33% of people in the U.S. have received at least one COVID-19 shot. About 19% are fully vaccinated.
