KISSIMMEE, Fla. - First Lady Jill Biden will visit Florida this week.
The First Lady is flying into Orlando on Thursday to visit a drive-thru vaccination site in Kissimmee.
She will then travel to Tampa and is expected to join the Tampa Bay Lightning for AdventHealth's ‘Shots on Ice’ vaccination event at the Amalie Arena.
The First Lady's visit comes as many states struggle to reach President Biden's Fourth of July vaccination goal. Florida is among the states lagging behind.

Health experts said that the U.S. will likely fall short of President Biden's goal, which is to have 70 percent of adults having at least one dose by Independence Day. The CDC said that 65 percent of adults are at least partially vaccinated as of now though.
16 states and the District of Columbia have reached the 70 percent goal. Florida is just over 50 percent.
