At 5:45 p.m. on May 12, the White House tweeted this totally bogus assertion that we told you about earlier claiming “[w]hen President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available”:

And just a little over 24 hours later, they’ve finally issued a correction:

“We previously misstated that vaccines were unavailable in January 2021. We should have said that they were not widely available. Vaccines became available shortly before the President came into office. Since then, he’s responsible for fully vaccinating over 200 million people.”

Better late than never?

But it’s still misleading. Nearly a million people a day getting vaccinated seems pretty “widely available” to us:

“White House “corrects” a lie with another lie. 1 million people were getting vaccinated every day the week Biden was inaugurated.”

Here’s the receipt:

Sure, there were issues, but the process was in place already before Biden even took office:

And in Florida:

Over to you, White House. Time for another correction.
