While giving a speech this morning on the jobs report, President Joe Biden claimed that “well over” 350 million Americans have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
The only problem with that claim, is that the number exceeds the population of the United States, which is around 331 million.
NPR gives a daily update of how many Americans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and they put the figure at over 165 million Americans.
They did note that more than 348 million doses have been administered, so it is possible that was the fact that Biden was attempting to share.
In a clip shared by Disclose.TV, Biden explained, “We have to get more people vaccinated. They say, well over, what’s the number again, I have to remind myself, 350 million Americans have been vaccinated.”
“They are doing fine. We have to get more people vaccinated,” Biden insisted.
Former MLB star Aubrey Huff mocked Biden’s gaffe and suggested, “Well since the entire US population has been vaccinated I guess we can take the masks off our kids at school.”

Although Biden said that those who have been vaccinated are “doing fine,” there is evidence that those who have been vaccinated are still able to catch the virus.
Earlier, we reported on Arizona State Senator Tony Navarrete, who was charged with sexual conduct with a minor. He is having a particularly bad week because he also recently announced that he had caught COVID-19, despite being vaccinated.
The Texas state Democrat legislators who fled to Texas to avoid voting on a voter integrity bill also had six vaccinated members of their delegation test positive.
