United States Reaches 70% Covid-19 Vaccination Goal of Joe Biden


On Monday, 2nd August 2021, according to the data published by the US CDC, 70 percent of the adult population of the United States have successfully had at least dose of a novel corona virus vaccine which has been the goal of Joe Biden, president of the United States of America.

The goal of 70 percent set by Joe Biden in the month of May 2021, has been seen by the federal health officials of the United States as an important step for the purpose of reaching the herd immunity, when the required number of people in each community will have the antibodies against some specific diseases.

The health experts of the United States said, as the milestone had been a significant achievement, it should be seen as a floor and not as a ceiling, more particularly as the Delta variant of the novel corona virus variant is spreading across the country.

Dr. Paul Offit, a voting member of the US FDA’s advisory committee for the vaccines and related biological products said, they now need to have at least 80 percent of the total population in the United States to be vaccinated for the purpose of truly having a particular form of the herd immunity and the novel corona virus has fairly been a contagious virus.

Dr. Natasha Bhuyan, a family physician working with One Medical in the region of Phoenix said, as the 70 percent vaccination mark across the United States is noteworthy, the local communities that are having lower covid-19 vaccination rates are still a reason for worry.
