U.S. Not on Track to Hit Biden’s July 4th Vaccination Goal

Most U.S. adults have gotten at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, but the country is behind the pace to meet President Biden’s goal of vaccinating 70% of all adults by Independence Day.

An analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data shows that if present trends continue, the president’s goal will not be reached, CNN reported.

The CDC’s June 3 report said 63% of adults had received their first dose of a vaccine, which was slightly up from 62% the week prior.

The 1% weekly increase is the lowest since the CDC started tracking the statistic in mid-February, CNN reported.

As of Monday, about 163 million Americans 18 and older, or 63.5% of the adult population, had received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, with over 136 million fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.
