Joe Biden sets new goal to vaccinate 70% of American adults by July 4

President Joe Biden on Tuesday set a new goal to have 70% of American adults with at least one coronavirus vaccine and 160million people fully inoculated by July 4.

‘Two months from today, families across the country are going to celebrate the Fourth of July. Our goal by July 4 is to have 70% of adult Americans at least one shot and 160million Americans fully vaccinated,’ Biden said during a briefing from the White House. ‘That means giving close to 100million shots, some first shots, over the next 60 days.’

Biden said that Americans can still get vaccinated after July ‘but no one should wait’.

‘Let’s try to hit that 70% mark before that day,’ he said.
