It has been a tough ride so far dealing with the pandemic from the past year. There has been a lot of haphazard and chaos. In recent times the situation has settled more or less as more and more people are getting vaccinated every day. The goal set by the President of the United States of America is nearing every day. Earlier in the year, President Biden had said that 70% of the American Adult population would get vaccinated by the 4th of July.
The Vaccination Goal Can Be Reached: President Biden
President Biden has not devoured that promise and he is constantly asserting that more and more people getting vaccinated every day. In his regular address to the nation of the United States of America, he said that June will be the last month to put in efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus. As more and more people are getting vaccinated every day, the country is opening up and it was very much visible on the memorial day celebration on the 31st of May.
People were seen spending some quality time out and about in the city after a very long time. This comes after more than half of the adult American population has been vaccinated completely. It is a milestone that has been achieved. Earlier in the month of May, President Joe Biden had announced that it is no longer mandatory for American Adults who have been fully vaccinated to wear masks in public places. This news was confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The population that has been fully vaccinated is at a very low risk to get infected because of the virus.
President Biden, while addressing the nation, said that he has always believed in the strength of the Americans. He believes that when Americans get determined towards doing something, there is no force that can stop them. He said that the United States of America can only prosper when the country stands together in unity and whenever the country has stood together they have overcome the hardest phases, he exclaimed. Mr. President again said that he is adamant on his goal of vaccinating 70% of American adults by the 4th of July. He said that the country is moving forward and making progress every day in front of healthcare. They have come out of a dark phase and he’s glad that it is over.
According to the data that is present, at least 63% of the entire American adult population has at least received the first shot of the vaccine. This data has been presented by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is a big achievement on the part of the Biden Administration. This also indicates that now only around 20 million are left to be vaccinated by the 4th of July. The vaccination drive has also been revamped and many drug stores have opened outlets for people getting vaccinated.
There are many states, 12 to be exact, that already have vaccinated 70% of their Adult Population. Some of those States are Hawaii, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Mexico etcetera. However, the Biden Administration is still struggling to win the confidence of people towards the vaccination. To solve this problem and to encourage more people towards vaccination, President Joe Biden has announced that the four largest child care companies will provide free child care to the parents who are getting vaccinated. This step has solely been taken to encourage more and more people who have yet not received their shots of the vaccine to do the same. This step of the Federal Government is very much welcomed as they have taken steps to fully vaccinate the country and eradicate the coronavirus.
