Fact Check: White House Makes False Claim COVID Vaccine Wasn’t Available Until Biden

The Biden administration made an erroneous statement on the White House Twitter account on Thursday, which prompted fact-checks.
“When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available. In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6 [percent] — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President’s term ever recorded,” the White House’s Twitter account wrote on May 12.
The “there was no vaccine available” claim is false because COVID-19 vaccines were available before President Joe Biden took office on Jan. 20, 2021.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services’ website, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), under the Trump administration, issued its first emergency use authorization for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 11, 2020, for individuals aged 16 and older. The first deliveries of the Pfizer vaccine started on Dec. 14 and vaccinations began that same month.
