U.S. to fall short of Biden's July 4 vaccination goal: official
Updated 08:02, 23-Jun-2021

The White House confirmed Tuesday that the country will not hit U.S. President Joe Biden's goal of getting 70 percent of American adults to receive at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot by the Fourth of July.

White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said the administration, instead, has met its 70 percent target for people 30 and older and is on track to hit it for those 27 and older by July 4.

He said U.S. officials are working with state and local leaders to reach younger people.
