White House Says July 4 Vaccination Goal Unlikely

The Biden administration acknowledged Tuesday that it likely won’t reach its goal of having 70% of the U.S. adult population getting at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccination by July 4.

However, the administration boasted that it has “succeeded beyond our highest expectations” in returning the nation to a pre-pandemic normal.

Jeffrey Zients, head of the White House COVID response team, said the administration has hit its 70 percent vaccination target among Americans 30 and older and is on the cusp for those 27 and older by the Fourth of July, NBC News reported.

But it will take “a few extra weeks” to get to all Americans 18 and older, Zients said, according to the NBC report.

“The reality is, many younger Americans have felt like COVID-19 is not something that impacts them and have been less eager to get the shot,” he said, NBC reported.
