WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden wrapped up his first address as president Thursday night, touting America’s progress with COVID-19 vaccinations, saying hope was to be found and pleading with Americans to stay vigilant. 

Biden directed states to make all American adults eligible to receive the vaccine no later than May 1.

In his first prime time televised address as president, Biden also touted the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief stimulus package he signed into law hours earlier.

“We lost faith in whether our government and our democracy can deliver on really hard things for the American people,” he said.
