In December, President Biden wanted to vaccinate 100 million people COVID-19 in his first 100 days in office. He’s recently increased that goal to 150 million vaccinations in his first 100 days.

But as users struggle to navigate confusing vaccine sign-up websites and data continues to be collected on who is getting vaccinated, the rollout process has remained shaky, and some say that target is still too modest.

More from NBC News:

This push comes as another world leader, Mexico’s president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, announced that he has COVID-19, and new cases of COVID-19 varients are cropping up around the United States.

Plus, Dr. Anthony Fauci says double masking does help to stop the spread of COVID-19.
