The White House confirms that President Joe Biden will announce he's moving up the timeline for states to make every American adult eligible for a coronavirus vaccine by two weeks, and will tout 150 million vaccinations in his administration's first 75 days.
Biden will direct states to widen the vaccine eligibility by April 19, two weeks earlier than the May 1 deadline he announced previously.
On Tuesday, Biden is scheduled to tour a vaccination site at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia, before making the announcement at the White House around 3:45 p.m. (1945 GMT).
Biden said Friday he would gather with family, even during the coronavirus pandemic because he and his wife had been vaccinated. That puts the president well on track to meet his new goal of 200 million shots administered by April 30 - his 100th day in office.
Several states have already opened up eligibility to residents 16 and up or announced plans to do so by May 1.

"That doesn't mean they will get it that day", Psaki said, speaking of a vaccine shot. "The lines are going to become longer". Seventy-five percent of people older than 65 have now received at least one shot, and more than 55% of them are fully vaccinated.
Pfizer and BioNTech's two-dose vaccine series are authorized for people aged 16 and up, while Moderna and Johnson & Johnson's vaccines are only authorized for adults 18 and above. The third vaccine requires just one shot.
