President Joe Biden on Tuesday set a new vaccination goal to deliver at least one dose to 70% of adult Americans by July Fourth, focusing on easing access to shots as his administration tackles the vexing problem of winning over those reluctant to get inoculated.
The new goal comes as demand for vaccines has dropped off markedly nationwide, with some states leaving more than half their vaccine doses unordered. Biden called for states to make vaccines available on a walk-in basis and will direct many pharmacies to do the same, and his administration is for the first time moving to shift doses from states with weaker demand to areas with stronger interest in the shots.
“You do need to get vaccinated,” Biden said from the White House. “Even if your chance of getting seriously ill is low, why take the risk? It could save your life or the lives of somebody you love.”
But Biden once again struggled to read his teleprompter and jumbled his speech.
He made just a “few errors” amongst them he called Americans who refuse to get the experimental Covid vaccine will cause others to die.
Asked by @karentravers about the next phase of COVID-19 vaccine rollout, Pres. Biden says, “Most people will be convinced by the fact that their failure to get the vaccine may cause other people to get sick and maybe die.”https://t.co/65DAtdSQBT pic.twitter.com/AX7wHVJVyQ

Biden couldn’t even properly pronounce the name of the government’s vaccine website:
“We’re going to make it easier than ever to get vaccinated. Visit vaccines.gum .gov – vaccines.gum – or text to, text your zip code to 438829.”
