President Biden called June a “national month of action” to combat the coronavirus outbreak on Wednesday, pushing Americans to be vaccinated. The president revealed a five-part strategy to accomplish his target of getting at least one COVID inoculation shot. The hands of 70 percent of the country’s adults by July 4th included initiatives to make it simpler to receive the vaccine and incentives like free food, drink, and tickets.
President Biden said that 52 percent of adults, including 75 percent of all seniors, are now entirely immunized. The president said, “Fully vaccinated are safely shredding their masks and greeting one another with a smile. Grandparents are hugging their grandkids again. Small business owners are reopening storefronts and restaurants because of the vaccination strategy.”
However, he cautioned that unvaccinated people are still at risk of becoming extremely ill or dying, as well as spreading disease to others. “For young people, who may think this doesn’t touch you, listen up please,” the president said, referring to younger Americans who have been more resistant to vaccinations than older Americans.
Biden also underlined that being vaccinated should not be a partisan issue, noting that the vaccines were developed in the previous administration without naming former President Trump. To meet his 70% objective — President Biden said 63 percent of adults have already had one shot – he’s beginning a “month-long effort” to make vaccinations more accessible.
