Not enough people vaccinated – Biden

Samizdat | October 25, 2022

US President Joe Biden received his fifth Covid-19 vaccine dose on Tuesday, and urged Americans to do the same. While the president is pushing for a yearly vaccine schedule, less than 10% of the eligible population has gotten the latest omicron-specific shot.

“Get vaccinated,” Biden said at a White House event. “It’s incredibly effective, but the truth is, not enough people are getting it. We’ve got to change that so we all can have a safe and healthy holiday season.”

Biden, who caught a recurring case of Covid-19 earlier this summer despite having received a total of four vaccine doses at the time, then rolled up his sleeve and received his fifth dose – this time of Pfizer’s omicron-specific bivalent booster – on camera.

The president said that the coronavirus vaccine is “just like the flu shot,” and added that “for most Americans, one Covid shot each year will be all that they need.”

However, uptake for the latest round of booster shots has been slow. Fewer than 20 million people have taken the updated formulation, or just 8.5% of the eligible population, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Meanwhile, the state of Florida has recommended against mRNA booster shots for children under 18 and males under 39, citing the low risk posed by Covid-19 to children and the elevated risk of cardiac arrest in young vaccinated men. Several European countries have issued similar recommendations in recent months, but the CDC still recommends that children as young as five receive bivalent boosters, and has recommended that Covid-19 vaccines be added to children’s routine immunization schedules.

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Biden combined an intense public messaging campaign with legal mandates for federal workers and contractors in a bid to up the US’ vaccination rate. While some municipalities also drafted their own mandates, legal challenges followed. In New York City on Tuesday, the Staten Island Supreme Court ordered the city to lift its mandate and rehire all employees fired for non-compliance with full back pay.

  1. “We’ve got to change that so we all can have a safe and healthy holiday season”. I can only imagine what they intend to force on us next. Someone please show me where in the Constitution does it give the Feds the authority or jurisdiction to decide what is healthy for us. Coming from the same entity that still poisons the water with Fluoride and sprays the sky with coal fly ash, we are expected to believe they have concern for our health? CRIMINALS – every flippen one of them.

  2. “Get vaccinated,” Biden said at a White House event. “It’s incredibly effective, but the truth is, not enough people are getting it. We’ve got to change that so we all can have a safe and healthy holiday season.”

    If “It’s incredibly effective”, how come the are now on their 5th new Vaccine???

    This is the reason the USA has had a number of “Idiot” Presidents since, and including LBJ. They know it is so easy to LIE to the American people. The people who own and control the “POTUS” can get away with any “bullsheet’ they want to, and the vast majority of Americans simply comply.

    • Because they are criminals and profiting from every jab. If not, they are bribed with unlimited donations from corporate America and this is how they pay them back. The country has been dumbed down, stupefied, brainwashed, divided, selfish and greedy. Anything the gooberment does is a Ponzi scheme that ordinary people would be jailed for doing the same. The sheep will soon be led to slaughter.
