Joe Biden is setting a new vaccination goal to deliver at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine to 70% of US adults by the Fourth of July, independence day, the White House has just said.
The new goal, which also includes fully vaccinating 160 million adults by July 4, 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.
