Biden falls short of goal to get 70% of Americans adults at least one COVID shot by July 4

As Joe Biden declares that “America is back,” the 46th president has been shy about admitting his latest defeat.

According to the Washington Examiner, Biden didn’t reach his goal of convincing 70% of American adults to get at least one dose of a vaccine against COVID-19 by the Fourth of July.

The Examiner cited data from the CDC that said some 67% of adults have gotten at least one shot for the coronavirus, about 8 million short of Biden’s hopes.

“More normal life”

Despite its shortcomings, the White House still seems to be claiming victory. As the Examiner noted, White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients told CBS News’ Face the Nation Sunday that he feels the administration has “made a lot of progress.”

“I think more progress, it’s fair to say, than anyone had expected,” he said, according to a transcript from CBS, “with two out of three Americans now with at least one shot of vaccine and importantly, close to 90% of those 65 years and older with one shot and close to 80% fully vaccinated.”

Zients went on: “That’s particularly important because we started the vaccination campaign focused on the most vulnerable. Unfortunately, people 65 and older accounted for about 80% of COVID deaths.”

The Biden adviser also told CBS that “with so many people now vaccinated, tens of millions of Americans can now return to…more normal life, you know, getting together with friends and family, going to restaurants, attending sporting events.” Take a look:

America is back?

Biden himself also seemed to take a victory lap this Independence Day. “This Fourth of July, America is back,” he wrote in a tweet.

“We’re headed into a summer of joy — of freedom — thanks to the millions of Americans who stepped up to get vaccinated. To the frontline and essential workers who have made this day possible: thank you,” the president added.

At least Biden got one thing right: despite not hitting the White House’s goal, many Americans are moving forward in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly as localities continue to lift mask orders and other pandemic-related regulations. Unfortunately for the president and his PR team, it doesn’t seem he had anything to do with it.

  7. He is not done until he and her both resign . And are removed from the WE THE PEOPLE’S WHITE HOUSE. And until then, nothing but FAILURES by demo-communist FAILURES.

  8. Covid is OVER. The occupant can’t accept that, but the dems don’t need it anymore so it’s over. I had it thus antibodies and I have a link for where to buy Invermectin, but I just use quinine. I know we have a COVID CULT that’s scared of their shadow. One of them was pissed off because I wasn’t wearing a face diaper, I never wore a mask. They don’t protect you or others from you. At best they give you a false sense of security, at worst lung cancer.

  9. Maybe people are getting smart and realizing we were lied to, the virus is not as deadly as we were told, the vaccine is deadly and caused injuries and miscarried babies, and there are safe, effective cures (ivermectin and hydrochloriquon) that are not being forced on the population to enrich Big Pharma, Bill Gates and Fauci.
    Bottom line – we don’t trust the lying Fauci who was manipulating funding from the US to the Wuhan Lab to develop bio-weapons, then he single-handidly took the US economy down with his pushing lockdowns, social distancing, masks (which hurt children’s health when they are not susceptible or spreaders); and rejected ivermectin and hydrochloriquon, killing how many people. And why is he out there now perpetrating more lies so he can sell more vaccines for Big Pharma etc.? He should be under indictment for his crimes.

  10. I’m 84. Have only worn a surgical mask (handed to me at a doctor’s office) when required, and never outside the threshold of a store or medical office. Will not be taking the vaccine as long as I can avoid it. Taking extra Vitamin C and D since 2/20. We are healthy senior citizens (husband 85) who have the common sense to make the decision to be unvaccinated while more research and side effects are being determined. So far, so good. I’m also a conservative evangelical Christian who trusts in the will and plan of my Savior Jesus Christ. If He used COVID to take me Home, so be it! Hallelujah!

  11. When the owners of a patented Bio-weapon have always owned the pseudo-cure, in the form of another bio-weapon, who dies? Who profits? The same people that use these weapons to ensure Obama’s third term: And they hate you America, and despise humanity

  12. biden had nothing to do with any of this this is all thanks to trump…everything was ALREADY lined out,so biden could go fishing and things wouldve been the same…he needs to concentrate on fixing the damn border..and keeping peace in the middle east,,,trump already had the covid stuff taken care of before he left office….
