Biden Pushes ‘Door-to-Door’ Campaign Targeting Unvaccinated People


Joe Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday touted a creepy “door-to-door” approach to convince Americans to get vaccinated.

“In today’s briefing we discussed how our administration is going to devote the remainder of the summer to a special focus on five ways to make gains and getting those of you who are unvaccinated vaccinated,” Biden said at his COVID-19 update. “Because here’s the deal, we are continuing to wind down the mass vaccination sites that did so much in the spring to rapidly vaccinate those eager to get their first shot and their second shot for that matter if they needed a second. Now we need to go 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.”

“By the end of the week,” Psaki said at a press briefing, “the United States will be nearing 160 million people fully vaccinated, which the president will touch on today as well, which is critically important, as fully vaccinated people are protected against the Delta variant. He will also stress how the administration will continue its efforts to work with governors, local leaders, and across the public and private sector to get more Americans vaccinated by making vaccines available in more healthcare settings and respond to hotspots.”

“The president will outline five areas his team is focused on to get more Americans vaccinated. One: a 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,” she continued.

In response to the outreach idea, the internet went absolutely wild. Take a look at some of the responses, as reported by the Daily Wire.
