WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden will receive the updated Covid-19 recording on Tuesday after making comments about the pandemic and the administration’s efforts to boost people in the US, a White House official said.

It’s been more than three months since Biden contracted the coronavirus, and that’s how long health experts recommend waiting before getting another shot.

Biden will underline that while progress has been made to keep people up to date on their vaccinations, more needs to be done, the official said.

Since the bivalent boosters became available, only about 20 million people have received their injections, according to maintain data by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new formula targets both the original Covid strain and the currently circulating ommicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5.

Biden administration officials were encouraged by an uptick last week when more than 4.5 million people received the latest shots, the largest weekly increase since the program launched in the fall.

The White House is targeting those most at risk for infection, including seniors. Half of the admissions have gone to people over 65, according to CDC data.

Top officials of the Biden administration have warned of a potential winter surge in recent weeks, especially as more people move in.

The White House’s Covid-19 Coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha, has emphasized that timing is also a key factor, driving people to ideally get their boosters before Halloween to have the best possible protection against the holiday season.
