President Joe Biden suggested this week that if vaccination efforts are slowed, the Fourth of July celebrations might get canceled.
The story: The president made the comment during a speech about vaccination efforts. He touted the current progress and called on Americans 16 and older to get vaccinated so the U.S. can return to normalcy.
At one point, he mentioned a “vision” he had for July 4 celebrations this year that involve commemorating the holiday in “small groups” and said that vaccination needs to continue at the current pace for it to come true.
What he said: “Back on March 11, I outlined a vision of what America could look like by the Fourth of July — an America that was much closer to normal life that we left behind more than a year ago,” the president said.
