U.S. Nearing Biden’s Vaccination Goal of 70% by July 4: Report

The United States is approaching President Biden’s goal of getting 70% of the nation’s adult population at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine by July 4, even as the rate of vaccinations has slowed.

The country remains on course due in no small part to the inroads made in inoculating 12-to-15-year-olds, who were approved to receive the Pfizer vaccine on May 10, The New York Times reported.

Biden announced on May 4 his goal of vaccinating 70% of the nation’s adults with at least one dose by the Fourth of July, as well as getting 160 million adults fully vaccinated by that point.

Roughly 168 million Americans, or about 50.5% of the total population, have gotten at least one vaccine dose so far, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Approximately 135 million have been fully vaccinated, meaning just over 714,000 people would need to get either a second dose of the two-shot Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine each day until July 4 to meet Biden’s goal.
