Get ready for yet another dramatic failure from the Biden administration. It’s looking more and more like the White House will not reach its goal for vaccination by the deadline it set earlier this year.

President Joe Biden in March declared that his objective was to get at least 70% of Americans to take the vaccine by Independence Day. He indicated that reaching this goal, it would allow the nation to get “closer to normal” by July 4.

However, none of these methods seem to be yielding results. At this point, only 14 states have reached 70% vaccination rates, and about 12 more are set to hit this goal by Independence Day.

Even a cursory glance at the numbers shows that the Biden administration is on
