Updated on

President Joe Biden called on Congress to authorize new money for Covid-19 treatments and vaccines, warning that supplies are running low and leaving the door open to a deal that reallocates previous funding.

“Just as we’ve reached the critical turning point in this fight, Congress has to provide the funding America needs to continue to fight Covid-19,” Biden said Wednesday at the White House before receiving his second booster shot of the Pfizer Inc.-BioNTech SE vaccine. “We’re already seeing the consequences of congressional inaction.”
