With sunny states easing, or in some cases dropping, health restrictions completely, Spring Break 2021 is off to a busy start. That is, for a country that's far from finished with COVID-19. According to the TSA, 1.3 million people flew on Friday.

The highest day of travel since the pandemic began. President Biden's 100 million shots administered in 100 days challenge has been met in only 50. 11% of the adult population has been fully vaccinated but, with images like these, there's cause for concern.

JOSEPH BIDEN: This is not over. Conditions can change. We're not finished yet.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Because images like these are still coming in. The US death toll is at over 534,000 and still rising. The Biden administration had another first 50 day accomplishment last week. Passage of the American Rescue Plan. This week, the challenge of implementing it begins.

JOSEPH BIDEN: We have to get this right. We have to continue to build confidence in the American people that their government can function for them and deliver.

MARGARET BRENNAN: We'll check in with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Arkansas Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson. Plus, there is good news about vaccine hesitancy among minorities.

We'll talk with the Chair of the COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith. Former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb will join us. And we'll talk with Ireland's Prime Minister Micheál Martin. It's all just ahead on "Face the Nation."
