The vaccination rush has slowed, and President Joe Biden is meeting virtually with six governors today to discuss how to revive momentum.

Biden wants 70% of Americans vaccinated by the 4th of July. That’s about what some experts say is needed to get the pandemic under control. Right now less than half of Americans had received at least one shot … Click here to read more.
