In his remarks in Wilmington, Delaware, this afternoon, President-elect Joe Biden is set to confront the slower-than-expected pace at which the Trump administration is administering vaccines, a transition official said, as current vaccinations significantly lag the 20 million officials promised by year’s end.

A transition official said the President-elect “will address the current administration falling short on its pace for vaccinations” and lay out his own plan for vaccinating people in a quick way.

The remarks will come after Biden receives a briefing from his Covid-19 advisory team, the official said, and the President-elect will also give a general status update on the pandemic and the stakes in the months ahead.

President-elect Joe Biden will deliver remarks this afternoon on the coronavirus pandemic from Wilmington, Delaware.

Biden's remarks come as the nation continues to battle a surge in cases and a record number of coronavirus-related hospitalizations.

Coronavirus vaccines continue to be administered and distributed across the country, but current figures fall well short of initial predictions for the end of the year and the US vaccination program appears to be taking longer than Warp Speed officials projected.

Coronavirus is one of Biden's key priorities, and earlier this month, the President-elect detailed his plan to combat the pandemic, including asking Americans to wear masks for the first 100 days after he takes office.
