Biden aims for vaccinating 70% of adult Americans by July 4

WASHINGTON (WQOW) — The White House says President Joe Biden is setting a new vaccination goal to deliver at least one dose to 70% of adult Americans by July 4. This comes as the administration pushes to make it easier for people to get shots and to bring the country closer to normalcy.

The new goal, which also includes fully vaccinating 160 million adults by Independence Day, comes as demand for vaccines has dropped off markedly nationwide, with some states leaving more than half their vaccine doses unordered.

Biden will call for states to make vaccines available on a walk-in basis and will direct many pharmacies to do the same.

Several places in the Chippewa Valley already welcome walk-ins.
