President Biden has announced a National Month of Action to mobilize an all-of-America sprint to get of as many U.S. adults as possible at least one shot by July 4th, so that more people can get the protection they need to be safe from a pandemic that has taken the lives of nearly 600,000 Americans.
Throughout the month, national organizations, local government leaders, community-based and faith-based partners, businesses, employers, social media influencers, celebrities, athletes, colleges, young people, and thousands of volunteers across the nation will mobilize to make it even easier to get vaccinated and to empower their communities to get vaccinated.
The focus of this month is on actions that will make it even easier to get vaccinated, mobilize the country around vaccine outreach and education efforts, and incentivize vaccination.
Thanks to the President’s whole-of-government response the U.S. has made significant progress in its fight against the pandemic since the President took office less than 5 months ago. More than 63% of adult Americans have already gotten vaccinated, including 73% of Americans age 40 and over, and COVID-19 cases and deaths have plummeted as a result – cases are down over 90% and deaths are down over 85% since January 20th.
Twelve states have already given at least one shot to 70% of adults and more than 28 states and DC have fully vaccinated 50% or more of their adult populations, but millions of Americans still need protection against the virus. Organizations and business from across the country have stepped up and responded to the President’s call to action.
The National Month of Action will include the following initiatives:
MAKING IT EASIER TO GET VACCINATED AND ADVANCING EQUITY
MOBILIZING THE COUNTRY TO DO MORE VACCINATION EDUCATION AND OUTREACH
