Biden administration renews push for COVID-19 vaccine
The Biden administration continues pushing Americans to get vaccinated.
a new sense of urgency in the White House tonight. As the U. S. Enters a troubling phase of the pandemic with officials nationwide voicing concern, we understand the frustration of leaders out there and public voices who are trying to say the right thing, save people in their communities. More than half the nation remains unvaccinated, allowing the highly contagious delta variant to spread like wildfire were the first to say. And we have long said that that's not enough. We need to ensure more people and more communities are vaccinated. President Biden and his top aides are worried the gains they've made are being erased while issuing blunt warnings from the White House podium to the millions who remain unvaccinated. Other communities where there's 40% 50% or otherwise. That's not just a health issue. It's a huge health issue. It's an economic issue. New cases, hospitalizations and deaths are a fraction of what they were before vaccinations, but the numbers are still rising quickly. The US is now averaging 43,000 new cases per day. A 65% increase over the last week, with cases topping 40,000 for the first time since May 250 new deaths each day. Almost entirely among the unvaccinated officials say the current surge from Delta could have been avoided. With one health official telling CNN we are seeing the consequences of what we've been warning about. It's serious and it's spreading faster than was anticipated. Booster shots aren't currently recommended by the FDA, but the U. S. Government has now purchased an additional 200 million doses of Pfizer's vaccine. Just in case here's the bottom line we've always prepared for every scenario. We don't know if we'll need a booster shot. Republican governors are now outright pleading with their residents to get the shot. You've got to get vaccinated now and and so all I would say is this delta thing is coming unvaccinated Missourians Are the primary target of this new COVID-19 strain Alabama one of the hardest hit. And now the least vaccinated state in the US only 33.9% of residents are fully vaccinated as cases are double what they were a week ago. Alabama's Republican governor says she knows who to blame the new cases in covid because of unvaccinated folks. What is it going to take to get people to get shots and artists? I don't know, you kill me folks supposed to have common sense, but it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It's the unvaccinated folks that let mustangs.
