Folks, we’ve officially reached our goal of 70% of adults receiving at least one dose of the vaccine. It’s incredible progress, but we still have further to go. If you haven’t already, get vaccinated. Let’s defeat this virus once and for all.

I’m just going to say it outright: I do not believe this number is correct.
The U.S. on Monday finally reached President Joe Biden’s goal of getting at least one COVID-19 shot into 70% of American adults — a month late and amid a fierce surge by the delta variant that is swamping hospitals and leading to new mask rules and mandatory vaccinations around the country.
Biden had set a vaccination goal of 70% by the Fourth of July. That figure was the low end of initial government estimates for what would be necessary to achieve herd immunity in the U.S. But that has been rendered insufficient by the highly contagious delta variant, which has enabled the virus to come storming back.
There was was no celebration at the White House on Monday, nor a setting of a new target, as the administration instead struggles to overcome skepticism and outright hostility to the vaccine, especially in the South and other rural and conservative areas.
The U.S. still has not hit the administration’s other goal of fully vaccinating 165 million American adults by July 4. It is about 8.5 million short.
Firstly, they are trying to make it look like Biden hit his goal (just a bit late).
Secondly and much more importantly, they are trying to make the unvaxxed feel alone and isolated, as if we are losing the war.
In fact, we are winning the war either way, because all of these vaxxed people are either going to die outright or develop chronic health problems that take decades off of their life, while we will remain virile and virulent.
We will just be able to walk up to the vaxxed and easily put them in headlocks and say “bitch, what you said?”
What will they do then?
There’s little you can do from inside a headlock.
Canada is reporting similar numbers.
With enough vaccines delivered for all eligible Canadians to have 2 shots, I give my deep thanks to Canadians, especially those on the front lines, who work so hard.
??Almost 60% fully vaxxed
??Over 70% have one dose

That is further proof that it’s a hoax – there is no way in hell Americans are believing science to the degree that Cucknadians believe science.
Canada is probably also lying.
I would cut 10 points off both numbers.
Ironically, as much as I hate women, the most important thing here is that enough women don’t succumb to the pressure. Everything is again riding on the weakest link.
Just a few men could repopulate if they had enough women.
