The COVID-19 vaccination goal set by Biden back in May was to deliver at least one dose to 70 percent of adult Americans by July 4. According to representatives with the Colorado State Joint Information Center, as of Monday evening, 69.51 percent of Coloradan ages 18 and older have received at least one dose of vaccine.
