According to a new study, those 8% who are skipping the second dose could be prolonging the pandemic. The research, published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, focused on responses from 1,000 American adults who were asked about the vaccines in February.

The president, in an address on Wednesday evening, said he had inherited a nation in crisis facing the worst pandemic in a century, the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.” The address on the eve of his 100th day in office, was not deemed a ‘State of the Union’ presentation because it was delivered in the first year of a new president’s term. It was also shorn of some of the typical pomp of the annual presidential speech to both the House and Senate because of coronavirus restrictions.
