Biden presses COVID-19 vaccination campaign as Delta coronavirus variant spreads

Source: Los Angeles Times

President Biden will announce new steps Tuesday afternoon intended to inoculate additional Americans against COVID-19 as the more contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus spreads and his administration labors to convince more people to get shots.

Among the steps is a focus on supplying vaccines to primary care doctors to allow Americans to get vaccinated by their healthcare providers who, polls show, have the trust of their patients.

There will also be a push to inoculate more adolescents as the next school year approaches. Because the Pfizer vaccine, which has been given emergency use authorization for children as young as 12 years old, requires two shots, and then a two-week wait before it becomes fully effective, there's a tight schedule to ensure students are completely inoculated before they return to classrooms.

The president's announcement was previewed by a White House official who declined to be identified before Biden's remarks. The spread of the Delta variant has increased the urgency of the vaccination campaign.

1. Could they set up walk in clinics at the schools?

Run it in the gym. Make it easy so kids (and parents if necessary) can get the first inoculation when they register for class, then the 2nd right before school starts again.
