Video clips of President Joe Biden saying the U.S. needs to prepare for the next pandemic have gone viral on social media.
While speaking to the media in the Roosevelt Room on Tuesday, Biden praised his government's efforts to ensure children under five can now get vaccinations for COVID-19.
"This is a very historic milestone, a monumental step forward," Biden said during his speech.
"The United States is now the first country in the world to offer safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines for children as young as six months old.
"In the first time in our fight against this pandemic, nearly every American can now have access to lifesaving vaccines. And we're ready."
