U.S. Unlikely to Hit Biden’s 70% Vaccination Goal by July 4

It is becoming increasingly unlikely that the U.S. will meet President Biden’s goal of 70% of Americans vaccinated by July 4.

As vaccinations started in the country, benchmarks were regularly met ahead of time.

Now the pace has slowed, with some states only inching their way to the 50% mark.

The White House has launched a month-long campaign to combat vaccine hesitancy, particularly in the South and Midwest.

Whether they can get more shots in arms or not, they say the timeline for ending COVID-19 restrictions will likely remain the same.
