President Biden said officials would be knocking on doors across America to pressure them into taking the coronavirus vaccine.
“Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and often times door by door – literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people,” Biden said during his coronavirus speech.

Biden’s messages came as the July 4th vaccination goal of 70% was not reached. The CDC reports that 55% of the U.S. population is at least partially vaccinated.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said preventative measures would have “targeted community by community, door to door outreach to get the remaining Americans vaccinated.”
Psaki was asked by a CBS reporter if “the White House would reimpose” coronavirus “restrictions, as cases tick up, or is it up to the states?”
“We certainly support their decisions to implement measures that will make their community safe,” Psaki stated. “States and local communities will have to make evaluations about what is in their interest.”
“There are much higher rates of vaccination in some parts of the country versus others,” she continued. “We are at almost 70 percent vaccination rate for adults 27 and older but almost for adults 18 and older.”
The high transmission rate of the Delta variant is reportedly “forcing” the Biden administration to “rethink Covid-19 measures,” meaning mask mandates could be re-instituted – to include vaccinated people.
The Delta variant has been labeled a “concern” by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) is urging vaccinated individuals to wear face coverings.
On July 4th Dr. Fauci said we would begin to see “almost two types of America” as the Delta variant spreads across the nation.
A July poll shows that 57 percent of Americans believe they have less personal freedom than before the coronavirus pandemic.
The Biden administration is “rethinking” the Chinese origins of the coronavirus.
