Four months after President Joe Biden announced an unprecedented vaccination rollout plan to return American life to semi-normalcy by Independence Day, he was back at a podium pleading with the percentage of the country that decided long ago to ignore him.
The nation has fallen short of Biden’s dreams of 70 percent vaccinations for American adults by July 4, however, the president announced on Tuesday a redoubling of efforts to convince millions of vaccine-hesitant people to get shots in arms.
“Please get vaccinated now!” Biden said on Tuesday in remarks outlining a five-pronged plan to expand vaccinations into communities that remain vulnerable to the coronavirus. “It works, it’s free, and it’s never been easier, and it’s never been more important. Do it now, for yourself and for the people you care about.”
