Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: Biden’s Vaccine Push Hits a Wall in Fight to Curb Delta | Top News” – below is their description.
(July 30) President Joe Biden made his best effort to juice vaccinations on Thursday, as the delta variant of coronavirus sweeps the U.S., ordering federal employees to get shots or face strict public health precautions and offering ordinary American holdouts $100 for a jab.
But his latest announcement showed the limit of his powers, and what happens next in the pandemic is largely out of the president’s hands.
White House officials had hoped that with free vaccines in plentiful supply across the country, most Americans would voluntarily get inoculated, snuffing out the pandemic. But Biden missed a target of getting at least one shot into 70% of adult arms by July 4, and only about 49% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
