The article goes on to state the following:
Together, those goals will mean about 100 million more shots, both first and second doses, across the next 60 days, a senior administration official said.

Biden said he just picked July 4 as the date to “get closer to normal” but he’s not going to “declare it’s over” on that date.
“We’re going to be vaccinating people into next fall, he said.

The report notes that the average number of shots per day has been falling in recent weeks, and Biden said the “next phase” will be to focus on people less willing to get the vaccine.
“As we anticipated, the pace of vaccinations is slowing, now that the majority of American adults have already gotten their first shot. Soon we’ll have reached the adults who are most eager to get vaccinated and at that point this effort will shift to a new phase,” he declared.
Asked by @karentravers about the next phase of COVID-19 vaccine rollout, Pres. Biden says, “Most people will be convinced by the fact that their failure to get the vaccine may cause other people to get sick and maybe die.”https://t.co/65DAtdSQBT pic.twitter.com/AX7wHVJVyQ
