The White House COVID-19 Response Team and federal public health officials will hold a coronavirus task force briefing on Wednesday morning.

The task force will meet at 10 a.m. and it will be livestreamed in this article. Delays are possible, if there is not a livestream available, check back at a later time.

A Twitter account for the White House COVID-19 Response Team on Wednesday morning posted that it is urging states to offer COVID-19 vaccines to walk-ins “to make this process easier” as the demand has dropped.

President Joe Biden has set a new vaccination goal to get 70% of Americans inoculated with at least one shot by July 4.

The president also said Tuesday that if the FDA authorizes the use of Pfizer’s vaccine in children as young as 12, the administration is prepared to ship doses to 20,000 pharmacies around the country and directly to pediatricians.
