President Joe Biden’s Thursday trip to Michigan has been postponed due to the weather, according to a White House statement.
The announcement was confirmed by a White House official.
Biden was scheduled to tour the Pfizer vaccine manufacturing facility in Portage on Thursday. Biden’s visit is now expected to take place on Friday, Feb. 19. It will be the president’s first visit to the state of Michigan since he was elected.
Pfizer said it takes about 110 days to produce a batch of the COVID-19 vaccine. Earlier this month, the company said it is launching “Project Light Speed” as it plans to make vaccine production more efficient. Pfizer expects to make a batch of the vaccine in about 60 days, meaning more doses are on the way.
