The US administration has met the goal set by President Joe Biden to vaccinate 70% of the country’s adult population over the age of 30 with at least one dose of the coronavirus drug by July 4, said the White House coordinator for the pandemic response, Jeffrey Zients.
“Today I am writing to you with great news. We have already met the president’s goal of vaccinating all American adults 30 years and older. That’s right: 70% of US adults over the age of 30 received at least one dose of the drug,” Zients said during a briefing broadcast on the White House website.
In May, the American leadership in the framework of vaccination against coronavirus set a new goal – to vaccinate at least one dose of the vaccine to 70% of adults in the country by Independence Day on July 4. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of Monday, just over 150 million people in the United States have already been fully vaccinated from COVID-19, and more than 177 million people in the country have received one vaccination.
