WASHINGTON (AP) - One month into Joe Biden's presidency, the president is on a glide path to reach his initial goal of administering 100 million vaccine doses in his first 100 days in office.

Now comes the far more ambitious and daunting mission of vaccinating all eligible adults against the coronavirus by the end of the summer.

Limited supply of the two approved vaccines has hampered the pace of vaccinations, and that was before extreme winter weather delayed the delivery of about 6 million doses this past week.

But the U.S. is on the verge of a supply breakthrough as manufacturing ramps up and with the expectation of a third vaccine becoming available in the coming weeks.
