U.S. 70% Vaccine Target May Not Succeed

White House Acknowledges July 4th Vax Goal Will Likely Fall Short

(Washington, DC) — The White House is admitting it may not reach President Biden’s goal to have 70-percent of the adult population partially vaccinated by the 4th of July. COVID coordinator Jeff Zients told reporters that falling short should not undermine the enormous progress that has been made over the past few months. Zients said they will still continue to encourage 18-26 year olds to get vaccinated. Dr. Anthony Fauci also said unvaccinated Americans remain at-risk and he sounded another warning about the rise of the deadly Delta variant.
