How are you, folks? Good to see you all. Thanks what you're doing. Nice to meet you. What's your name? What's your name? Sandra. Sandra. Vanessa. Arlita. Cynthia. Hi, Cynthia. How are you? Is this where you register? Yes, this is where we register, and check them in. And can they just show up to register or do they need an appointment to come? Um, yeah. They need to have an appointment, so we usually ask them for a license, the insurance card, and, uh, ask them what time they come in, you know? Tell them, how are you? Be polite and everything and just check them in and sit them down. And roughly how many people a day do you have come through? Uh -- Any idea? About 300 a day here. Pretty good. And overall, we've done about 20,000. Yeah. 5,000 a week at this point in time. Yeah? Yeah. So -- We've passed a hundred and 50 million. Yesterday. Oh, really? Wow. Awesome. And 200 million in the first hundred days. Oh, wow. Yeah. So, I'm keeping a secret, everybody can hear me. Well, thank you. Thank what you're doing. I appreciate it. It's an honor. Thank you. Yeah. Hi, how are you? I'm good. My name's Kevin. Oh, Kev, how are you? I'm doing well. How are you? Better for seeing you guys. So, a key part with our registration here is it's very low technology barriers. So, all of our patients, we call directly to make sure they can get an appointment right away. If not, we text them all to make sure that we can schedule them appointments. Um, we also have set slots set aside for community partners which include faith-based organizations, and other community organizations, just so they don't have to go through, like, a tedious online registration process or have to self-schedule themselves. Um, with the communities we serve, a lot of them have varying health literacy levels, um, so we just make sure that we just move through quickly. That's great. And Mr. President, the whole focus of our program is on equity. Yep. So, we're -- we're trying to increase equity by vaccinating our own patient population of primarily low-income, uninsured, underinsured, a lot of people of color. Um, but also working with community partners. About a hundred different faith organizations. That's why we went to community centers. That's why we did that. Exactly. We -- We got criticized over doing it, but it turned out the -- the right thing to do. Yeah. You guys are good. And that -- And that funding and support for community health centers has been incredibly important. Also the ability to get vaccines directly from the federal government, um, has really allowed us to do this. This is the guy you could think and we got in office. Didn't have a whole lot. We're now 600 million doses. [Applause] How you all doing? Hello, mother, how are you? What's your name? Nice to see you all. Just don't ask me to play the piano or the organ. I can't. Don't know how. My father would say I have no talent at all. My dad used to play the saxophone, had a band when he was in high school. He'd look at me, he'd say, "Joey, I don't know where you came from." He said, "You have two left feet, and you can't dance, you can't carry a tune and a wheelbarrow and then he's saying, you have no lip to play a reed instrument," but, you know? So I had to become president. You know, also do -- It's great to see you all. Thank you. Now, did you guys already have your shot or you're waiting? Not yet. You're waiting. Well, you're doing the right thing. Oh, you really are. We're -- We're at the point where we will have administered at least one shot to a hundred and 50 million people as of yesterday and we have s -- what, almost 75% of the seniors? 75% of seniors, people 65 and older got at least one shot, and more than half are fully vaccinated. So, and that's the way to beat this. Get the vaccination when you can. Thank you for -- for coming in and doing it. That's why we went to these community health centers and you guys are doing a great job here. Well, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And I promise you -- [Applause] My wife, who doesn't like needles, um, sh -- we went to get a shot. She was going like this, and I said, "Honey, it's over. It's over. It's already in there." So, it's nothing to it. How many is your first shot? How many is this your second shot? Second one. Oh, you're pros. You're all pros. Well, thank you so much for doing this. You're doing the right thing. Nice to see you. A pleasure to see you. Thank you. It's a dream come true. What's your name? My name is Saviya Khan. Well, Saviya, how are you? Good, how are you, sir? I'm better for seeing you, I can tell you. Well, thank you. I'm immigrant parent. From where? India. India? Yeah. Been to India a number of times. And these my three kids here. Two, one is graduate, one is, uh, about to graduate, and one is, uh, in 11th grade. Oh, great. I'm proud to be part of America. You are America. Yeah. You are America. America's a nation of immigrants. That's who we are. And, by the way, the Vice President's mother was from India. Yeah. Yeah. She's from India too. Yeah. Well, it's great to see you all. Nice to see you. Thank you. Man, you got biceps as big as my thighs, man. You're a big man. What's your name? How you doing? My name's Carl Allen. Well, Carl, you probably came in wanting a shot, and now Biden's holding you up here. Yeah, no. You can raise me up and I'm getting ready to get the shot. Getting his shot. [Laughs] Well, great to see you all. I don't wanna slow things up. You're doing the right thing. Really important. And when you go back, when you go home, get all your friends. Tell them get a shot when they can. We're gonna be able to do this. Everyone's gonna be able before the month is out. Every age. So, and thank you guys very much. Thank you. Well, this is the guy. I was -- To be a good president, you gotta be smart enough to hire people smarter than you and that's what I did with J -- Mr. Zients here. He handled the Ebola crisis, and we asked him to come in and do this. We have a full blown staff and, you know, he was able to get about 600 million doses of this ready and we're gonna keep going. Hopefully, we're gonna get good enough pretty soon where we have enough that we can give to the rest of the world. Because this is something that's not just -- We could solve it here in America. We don't solve it around the world, you can't build a wall or fence high enough to keep out a virus. That's right. Right. Exactly. Well -- Absolutely. That's everything. You getting ready to go, man? Fire away. Fire away. You wanna hold my hand? God love you. You realize you got television -- This matters, people seeing you get the shot. It helps get other people to get the shot. Absolutely. Didn't even flinch. God love you. There you go. You're all set. Thank you. He's gonna be hard. He got so much muscle mass there, you're gonna have to get through it, you know what I mean? I tell you what, I could've been an all-American if I had those. Well done. Thank you. Thank you. What's your name? My name's Mary Hill. Where you from, Mary? Massachusetts. Where? Lowell. Yeah, I been to Lowell. Many times. Now, are you -- Where do you work? Neighborhood Health. I'm one of the Nurse Managers. Oh, you're one of the -- And then I'm working with the vaccine clinic right now. Oh, great. So, going around helping. Neighborhood Health does a lot of good work. We are. No, you really do a lot of good work. We're able to get you some help, too. Some money. That's fabulous. So, well, thank you. And what's your name? I'm Dainya. Hi, Dainya, how are you? Good. Thank you. Well, good to see you. Did you get it, man? You set? You get him in? Get him in. You set? [Laughs] All right, what's your name? Julie. Hi Julie, how are you? Good, how are you? And what's your name? Tiana. Tiana. And how long you guys been helping out doing this? Um, since August. Oh, that means you're almost a lifer here. How about you, hun? Excuse me? How long have you been helping? Um, for about four months now. Great. Since January. Great. Well, thanks what you're doing. You're saving people's lives. It's our pleasure. Really are. Mr. President, quickly: Do you think the worst is behind us with COVID-19? I think if everyone continues down the road we're on now, it will be behind us. But it's not over yet. We're in a situation where we -- I believe, by the end of this summer, we'll have a significant portion of the American public vaccinated. I'm going to be making a speech when I leave here. There's no place to do it here, but back at the White House, we're going to announce how far down the road we are in terms of the number of people vaccinated with at least one shot. I think before another 25 days, we'll probably have somewhere in excess of 200 million shots that have been administered. And the good news is: A clear, overwhelming majority of people over the age of 65 have gotten at least one shot. And that's the most susceptible age bracket. And the good thing also: All these strains you're hearing about, you should not worry. They are more virulent, and they are -- some are more dangerous, but the vaccines work on all of them. So the idea is, don't think that means you shouldn't get a vaccine. That increases the need to get one quickly, because that's how we're going to beat this. And you're going to beat it. But keep wearing a mask. Soci -- wash the hands and socially distance, which I'm not doing. [Laughter] I'm going to get in trouble here. Is this your second shot? Second shot. Oh, we're set. [Laughter] I've had two as well. So -- Well, thank you. President Biden, I wanna thank you for coming. I'm the Medical Director of Neighborhood Health. Oh my god, how are you? Doctor, yes, I've heard of you. Yeah, and I -- Oh, you have? No, no. I'm serious. We talked about you before I came over. Well, thank you, because, you know, the vaccine that we're giving here is because of your program to bring vaccine to community health centers. Yep. And so we've been able to vaccinate patients in their medical home with familiar faces to have it a positive, personal experience, and I think that helps people that are afraid, to have a familiar, um, location and -- and partnerships administering their vaccine. And I wanted to point out our team. We've given almost 20,000 doses and they have not wasted a single dose. God love you. Every dose that they brought -- [Applause] So, I wanted to just congratulate them. By the way, on Saturday. Yeah. We gave four million shots in one day. Yeah. Four million. Didn't start off that way. Yeah. And -- And then the other thing is, you've heard of people having issues with technology and websites. Yeah. So, all the vaccinations we've done has been because someone from the clinic called a person, texted them. Someone from their church called them. A nonprofit case manager called them, and it's that kind of outreach that you need, um, to really ensure equity. Yeah. Um, and that's what -- You may remember when, uh, I indicated we were going to these clinics to -- to go out and deal with your organizations and others like you, I was roundly criticized for doing that, as you recall. But you're the ones who reach out. Yeah. You're the one that knows everybody who is just technolo -- I think of my mom. Yeah. And my mom, who's passed away, but my mom was a very bright woman, and she was a wonderful lady. I was one of those guys that I won the gene lottery. Everybody wished my mom had been their mom. Yeah. Not a joke. And, uh, but my mom -- Her ability to use, uh, a computer or to use a telephone and to -- to sign up. Yeah. She would've been lost. Yeah. Absolutely. Would've been lost. And like all of you, very bright person, but a lot of people just don't have that facility. Just aren't -- aren't -- aren't b -- know how to do that. And so what do they do? They keep putting off and putting off and putting off, but you know where people live. We all do. That's why we've also set up around the nation, um, mobile clinics as well. Tell them about what we're doing now in the mobile clinics. Yeah, there's over just a thousand mobile clinics now, and you're deploying mobile clinics and pop-up points to meet people where they are. That's right. Churches, a community center. Absolutely. No, our patients are walking -- walking to their vaccine from their neighborhood, yeah. And, you know, one of the things we've done -- we also started off and, again, we got criticized initially by some, but we opened it up to -- We initially didn't have it -- You know, you used to go get your flu shot, you'd go to the local drug store, local pharmacy. Well, we went -- We did that. We're now up to how many pharmacies? We're in the 20,0000s, more than 20,000. You're gonna be at 40,000 by April 19th. So, f -- and almost everybody's within five miles of a pharmacy, but still, if you were my mom and she didn't have children, she wouldn't h -- ha -- ive miles might as well be 500 miles to get there. Yeah. And so that's why you guys are the best. You reach out. You know where people live. Yeah. You know the people and getting the churches and the synagogues and mosques engaged in doing this is really, really important. They've just been wonderful partners. I mean, when we reached out to them, we -- we didn't know what type of response we would get, but they've been reaching out, you know, on their own time, signing up hundreds of patients. Um, even more than a thousand patients for some of the churches we're working with. Um, there's all this stuff about hesitancy but what we've seen is there motivation to get vaccinated. You just need access. Yep. And that's where we're working with our partners. Yeah. To provide. Look, don't underestimate. The more people who know, when you go home in your neighborhood, and you got vaccinated, someone who's afraid of it or worried about it -- That's right. They go, "Y -- You got it? It's okay? I mean, you think it's safe? Uh, do you? Oh, yeah. Okay, well, m -- ," and encourage them. Encourage them. Yeah. Because this is how we're gonna beat this. Yeah. This is how we're gonna beat this. We're now at what, 75% of people 65 and over have at least one shot, and the other thing I say to all of you -- all of these new variants you hear about, you know, a -- and they give them names. There's the -- the one from England, South Africa, Brazil, C -- some of them are more contagious. Some of them do -- do more damage than others, but the vaccines take care of all of them. All of them. So, you -- The more you hear about, don't get frightened. The vaccine you hear about, the -- the -- the one from England, well, it is -- it is more communicable, but if you're vaccinated, it doesn't matter. It takes care of all the strains. All of them. So, you know, the best thing you can -- You know, everybody -- Some of my very conservative friends say, "Why does Biden keep saying keep wearing a mask, wash your hands, and stay socially distanced?" I say, they said, "It's my freedom not to." It's your patriotic responsibility to do it. To care about your neighbor. Not so much you. It's about your neighbor. Your neighbor. That's what it's about. So, I th -- I came all in no small part to thank you all. Not just all your folks who are doing this and not just folks here at the seminary, but all of you for doing this. It really matters. And guess what? You make your children very happy. You really do. How many times you get, "Dad, you get your shot yet?" [Laughs] "Dad, get in the car with me. Dad, get ready to go." And pretty soon, I'm gonna announce that everybody over the age of 18 is just automatically able to show up. And that means that if you have someone home who's over 65 years of age, get them to go now, because I'm gonna be making that announcement in a couple of weeks here. They're gonna have to get the appointment now so you don't have to wait in line. We're gonna open it up across the board and, uh, you know, we've given more vac -- vaccinations, and more vaccine than any other country in the world. And the other part of this is -- He's sneaking up on me, he's gonna tell me something. He's gonna, "Come on, Joe, get going. You're talking -- Yeah [Laughs]. Your phones are sneaking up on me [Laughs]. No, I know that. But, you know, and what we, uh, I just want you to know, so don't get mad at me. What I'm gonna be doing is after we are sure of our supply, that I have enough for every American, we're gonna start giving the vaccines around the world, to poor countries [Applause]. Because you -- you can't build a fence high enough, you can't build a wall high enough, and we're only as safe from people who aren't vaccinated as those folks who have already been vaccinated. You can't -- So you have a small country -- I -- I've spoken with 38 heads of state now, s -- spoken to the President of Mexico, and Canada, the Prime Minister, and -- and -- and Vietnam, and all across Am -- America, or all across the world. And they're asking, "Can you help?" We've already been able to help our neighbor -- near neighbors Mexico and Canada a little bit, but we wanna help all these countries, especially poor countries. They just don't have the wherewithal to do it. So anyway, thank you, thank you for what you're doing, and as my -- Every time I'd walk out of my grampa's house up in Scranton, Pennsylvania -- his name was Ed Fin -- uh, Ambrose Finnigan -- he'd say, "Joey, keep the faith." And my grandma [Inaudible], "No, Joey. Spread it. Spread it." [Laughter]. So let's go spread the faith, okay? I'm holding you up. I'll get outta your hair. Where am I going? That way? [Applause] Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. [Applause] Thank you so much for coming, Mr. President. And keep using those dumbbells, will ya? [Laughter]. Thank you, man. Our team is so appreciative. Oh come on. I'm working for ya. [Crosstalk] You're doing incredible work.
