President Joe Biden announced Thursday that his administration has secured deals for another 200 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine, bringing the U.S. total to 600 million.

“Just this afternoon, we signed the final contracts for 100 million more Moderna and 100 million more Pfizer vaccines,” Biden said Thursday while on a tour at the National Institutes of Health, adding the U.S. will have enough supply for 300 million Americans by the end of July.

The Washington Post first reported the news. Earlier, White House chief of staff Ron Klain appeared to confirm the news, retweeting the Post story from his official White House Twitter account.
