The Biden administration missed its 70 percent target vaccination rate for the U.S. population as the Fourth of July holiday arrived Sunday.

Sixty-seven percent of Americans have been inoculated, representing a shortfall of 8 million people, according to the CDC.

The president said recently that the country could enjoy a “more normal Fourth of July” if a large majority of people received both doses by Independence Day.

At the Fourth of July celebration on the South Lawn of the White House, President Biden called vaccination “the most patriotic thing you can do.”

“Today, all across this nation, we can say with confidence: America is coming back together,” he said. “Today we’re closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus. That’s not to say the battle against COVID-19 is over. We’ve got a lot more work to do.”
