White House officials announced yesterday that the federal government will be “knocking on doors” in order to push more people to accept the COVID-19 vaccine.
“We need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door to door – literally knocking on doors – to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” said President Joe Biden.

The president attempted to shame those who have declined to take a vaccine which is not fully tested and which has increasingly been shown to produce disastrous health side effects for some, including death.
Because “millions of Americans are still unvaccinated and unprotected,” Biden claimed that “their communities are at risk. Their friends are at risk. The people they care about are at risk.”
Biden also targeted unvaccinated young people “who may have thought that they didn’t have to be vaccinated, didn’t have to worry about it, didn’t have to do anything about it up to now.”
Earlier, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that a top priority for the administration is “targeted, community-by-community, door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need on how both safe and accessible the vaccine is.”
It’s unclear whether the government door-knocking initiative will merely target communities with low vaccination rates, or consist of government workers only going to the houses of the unvaccinated.
