President Biden is delivering remarks after his $1.9 trillion Covid relief plan was passed by the House of Representatives. The President is hosting vaccine makers now at the White House.
Biden is set to sign the bill into law on Friday afternoon.
"A vaccinated American is the only way to beat the pandemic, get the economy back on track, and for us to get back our lives and our loved ones. That's why the American Rescue Plan was so critical," Biden said.
Biden thanked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other lawmakers for passing the bill.
"This bill represents a historic, historic victory for the American people. I look forward to signing it later this week," he said. "Everything in the American Rescue Plan addresses a real need – including investments to fund our entire vaccination effort. More vaccines, more vaccinators and more vaccination sites."
