Biden announces month-long COVID-19 vaccine push | CIDRAP

Today President Joe Biden announced a month-long vaccine push aimed at Americans under the age of 40 in an effort to vaccinate 70% of American adults with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine by Jul 4.

“If you get a shot this week you can be fully vaccinated by July 4, and celebrate independence from the virus,” Biden said today during a news conference. “We need everyone to pull together to get us over the finish line.”

Getting to the finish line will protect Americans from another wave of illness and death in the fall, Biden said, while announcing five initiatives the federal government is taking in June to increase vaccine uptake amount young Americans and minorities.
