Fact check: White House tweet falsely claims 'there was no vaccine available' when Biden took office - CNN

"When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available," the tweet said.

Facts First: It's just not true that "there was no vaccine available" at the time Biden took office.

At the time Biden was inaugurated, it was often difficult even for people in eligible groups to secure an appointment.

But saying "there was no vaccine available" at the time he took office, period, goes too far -- wrongly making it sound as if the whole vaccine rollout began under Biden.

He has repeatedly said, including at least three times this month alone, that there were only 2 million people fully vaccinated at the time he took office compared to 220 million people fully vaccinated today.

Though the real number of fully vaccinated people at the time he took office was more than 3 million -- Biden might have been relying on preliminary initial data that put the number around 2 million -- Biden's "2 million" figure is certainly much closer to the truth than the White House's tweeted claim that "there was no vaccine available."

Biden also said in an April 2021 speech that 8 percent of people over the age of 65 had received a shot at the time he took office.
