Asked about the phenomenon, Biden said that Trump's opinion on vaccines mattered less than advice from local medical and community leaders.

Biden said the nation is "just days away" from 100 million shots in the arms of millions of Americans, as well as "one hundred million checks going into the pockets" of even more Americans.

President Biden says he will take care of Americans first, and then share remaining vaccines to help people in other countries.

His comments come as his administration begins its "Help is Here" roadshow tour, with Vice President Kamala Harris heading to Las Vegas and First Lady Jill Biden touring a New Jersey elementary school.

"We have to prove to the American people that we can provide relief without waste or fraud", Biden said. Over the weekend, Dr. Anthony Fauci called on former President Trump, who was secretly inoculated before he left office, to encourage people to get vaccinated.

Biden makes his first trip promoting the relief plan Tuesday when he goes to Delaware County, a key suburban Philadelphia jurisdiction in the eastern state of Pennsylvania that he carried over former President Donald Trump in the November election.

Democrats regard the bill as good policy and good politics.

Democrats are mindful that in 2009, the last Democratic president, Barack Obama, under whom Biden served as vice president, spent little time promoting the $800 billion economic stimulus package he and fellow Democrats helped push through Congress to help rescue the USA economy from the steep recession they inherited from Republican President George W. Bush. Democrats went on to lose control of the House to Republicans the next year.

Stops at vaccination sites, businesses, schools and more are meant to educate the public about different aspects of the giant American Rescue Plan.

At least two outside political spending groups that backed Biden's presidential bid, Priorities USA and Unite the Country, said they would put millions of dollars into advertisements supporting the stimulus measure.

Harris said she visited Nevada because of the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on the state's hospitality industry.
