The officials also said, the administration of Joe Biden has been poised for meeting the target for the vaccinating the people, who are above 27 years of age and older on 4th July 2021, which is the Independence Day of US, but they are likely going to fall short of the target of Joe Biden.

Jen Psaki, press secretary of Whitehouse said, for now their main focus has been continuing their efforts among the groups and the demographics since the beginning, where they are going to be needing some extra assistance, and Jeffrey Zients, senior advisor of covid-19 for the Whitehouse said, it is likely going to take some weeks beyond 4th July 2021 for meeting the targets of vaccination of Joe Biden.
