New: Tens of millions of Americans are now eligible for booster shots. Those who received Pfizer or Moderna and are 65 and older, at high-risk for severe COVID, work in a high-risk job or live in a high-risk setting can get a booster, at least 6 months after their 2nd shot.
If you’re one of the 15 million people who got J&J, you’re eligible for a booster – you can get another dose of J&J, or either Pfizer or Moderna boosters at least two months after your shot.
The FDA and CDC have determined these booster shots are safe and effective, based on the latest data and evidence, after a thorough, independent and transparent review process.

If you look at the world’s advanced economies, those countries invest an average of $14,000 per year for a toddler’s child care. America invests about $500 per year — less than 4% of what our competitors invest.

Here’s what that does to our economy:
30 years ago, the U.S. ranked 7th among advanced economies in the share of women working. Now, we rank 23rd and are losing out on more than $500B of additional economic activity per year.

The Build Back Better Agenda will cut child care costs and help parents get back to work.
The President's Build Back Better Agenda will ensure that no middle class family will pay more than 7% of their income on child care for young children.

This is about more than giving working families a break. It’s about positioning our country to compete for the long haul.

Today, the White House hosted 97 teachers from all over the country to celebrate their work and present them with 2020 and 2021 Teacher of the Year awards.

Here's what a few teachers had to say about what inspires them, and what their favorite part of the job is: THREAD
Chanda Jefferson, 2020 South Carolina Teacher of the Year, recalls how her high school Chemistry teacher — her only African American science teacher — ignited her love of STEM and inspired her to become an educator too.
Owen Bondono, 2021 Michigan Teacher of the Year says other great teachers, including his sister and 6th grade teacher, inspired him to teach. "Her small actions every day in the 6th grade, made me feel special... and made me want to help other people feel that same way."

Today, we're taking a #WhiteHouseDeepDive into how President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and Build Back Better Agenda will position the United States to outpace our global competitors and win the 21st century. THREAD:
For years, the US has fallen behind other major economies in some of the most critical areas of competition. By investing in our physical infrastructure and our people, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and Build Back Better Agenda will set us back on track to lead the world.
The auto industry's future is electric. China has produced 2 times more electric vehicles (EVs) than we have. @POTUS's infrastructure bill and Build Back Better Agenda will close the gap by establishing the first national network of EV chargers and EV tax credits for consumers.

For years, the US has fallen behind other major economies in some of the most critical areas to our economic competitiveness. Together, the Build Back Better Agenda and Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will position the US to win the race for the 21st century.

China has manufactured more than twice the number of electric vehicles (EVs) as the US. President Biden’s infrastructure deal and Build Back Better Agenda will close the gap by establishing a national network of EV chargers and providing tax credits for consumers buying EVs.
In a 2020 evaluation of “energy transition readiness,” the World Economic Forum ranked America behind Australia, Germany, Japan, and others.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will make the largest investments in clean energy transmission and climate resilience in US history.
