PRESIDENT Joe Biden accidentally called the CDC the "CD" in a nationwide speech on the coronavirus vaccine rollout.
During a primetime speech regarding vaccine eligibility for Americans, Biden referred to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mostly known as the CDC, as the "CD."
"And the more people are fully vaccinated, the CD will continue to provide additional guidance on what you can do in the workplace, places of worship with your friends, as well as travel," Biden's gaffe went.
Biden delivered his first primetime address on Thursday just hours after he signed his $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill into law.
In the speech, Biden vowed that all Americans would be able to receive the vaccine come this spring.
"Say that again – all adult Americans will be eligible to get vaccinated no later than May 1," Biden said.
"That’s much earlier that expected."
He also promised to open K-thru-8 schools this coming school year and would be releasing guidance on what vaccinated people can do.
"I need you, I need every American to do their part," he said.
"I need you to get vaccinated when it becomes your turn," he added. "If we do this together, by July the Fourth, there's a good chance you, your families and your friends, will be able to get together in your backyard."
"Where we not only mark our independence as a nation, but when we begin to mark our independence from this virus," he added. "To get there, we can't let our guard down."
