The Biden administration announced it would fall short of its goal of getting 70% of the population vaccinated for COVID by early July. Score another “fail” for Biden’s point woman, Kamala Harris. According to this gushing Forbes report from early June: President Joe Biden on Wednesday tapped Vice President Kamala Harris to lead a national vaccination tour as part of a “month of action” to boost slowing vaccination rates — adding to an expanding list of herculean tasks assigned to the vice president. The White House COVID response team announced Tuesday the U.S. will not hit President Joe Biden’s goal of getting 70% of all adults ages 18 and older vaccinated with at least one shot by the symbolic July Fourth holiday. Earlier this month, Biden had called for a national “month of action” — an “all-America sprint” to reach the goal and a “summer of freedom.” “We can do this,” Biden said. The press is reporting that vaccine hesitancy, particularly among the young, is keeping people away, for one thing. Not even lotteries and free stuff, as some states are offering, are making a difference, either. Biden just figured that if he sent Kamala on the road, all would be fixed.
