Thursday, June 24

Today, President Joe Biden will be traveling to Raleigh, North Carolina, to promote COVID-19 inoculations as part of his “National Month of Action.” He will visit the Green Road Community Center in north Raleigh, an area where under 40% have received a single dose, to encourage education and outreach regarding the importance, ease and availability of the vaccine.

The president had a goal for 70% of Americans to have received at least one dose of the shot by July 4th. This week, Jeffrey Zients, leader of the White House COVID Response Team, said, “it’ll take a few extra weeks to get to 70% of all adults with at least one shot.”

At this point, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approximates that 65% of adults across the U.S. are partly vaccinated. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services reports their state falls closer to 55%.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For safety for the president as he travels.
  • For wisdom for the president and his administration as they promote the coronavirus inoculations.
  • For discernment for CDC officials as they evaluate side effects and adverse reactions to the emergency approved shots.
