Many in the United States remain sceptical of the shots two months after Mr Biden declared that Americans are “closer than ever to declaring our independence” from the coronavirus.

In July, Mr. Biden said federal workers had to get vaccinated or face regular COVID-19 testing and other restrictions like mandatory face masks at workplaces.

In a 5 p.m. ET (2100 GMT) speech, Mr. Biden will take it a step further, announcing an executive order to require all federal employees and government contractors to get vaccinated, a source familiar with the situation said.

Just over 53% of Americans are fully vaccinated, including almost two-thirds of the adult population, according to CDC data. The disease has killed more than 654,000 Americans.

Mr. Biden will lay out a six-part plan to get more people vaccinated, enhance protection for those who already have had shots and keep schools open, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

With 160,000 new infections a day, the country is “still in pandemic mode… That’s not even modestly good control,” Mr. Biden’s chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci told Axios, adding: “You’ve got to get well below 10,000 before you start feeling comfortable.”

The White House plans to offer booster shots providing additional protection to those who are fully vaccinated, a rejection of arguments from the World Health Organization and other advocates that with global vaccine supplies limited, rich countries should pause booster shots until more people worldwide are inoculated.

Psaki told MSNBC the White House wants COVID-19 tests to be easier to obtain.

Abbott Laboratories and other test manufacturers are trying to boost production as cases soar, after having scaled back in recent months. CVS Health Corp recently imposed limits on the number of at-home tests customers can buy.

“It’s hard to find a test… they should be more available and accessible to people across the country,” Psaki said.

The White House says the federal government cannot mandate vaccines nationwide, but it has encouraged school districts, businesses and other entities to require shots.
