President Joe Biden doubled down on White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s message on Tuesday that the administration intends to send people door-to-door to check people for vaccinations.
The president came out to deliver the message himself. Watch:
“A special focus on five ways to make gains in getting those of you who are unvaccinated vaccinated,” Biden said. “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 need the 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,” Biden added.

Earlier in the day, Jen Psaki warned Americans that community organizers would be coming door to door to ask them about their most private and personal health decisions.
“The president will outline five areas his team is focused on to get more Americans vaccinated,” Psaki said. “One, targeted community, by door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need on how safe and accessible the vaccine is.”
There are currently 157 million fully vaccinated Americans in the United States. There are fewer than 6,000 cases and 50 deaths per day. When combining natural immunity, vaccination rates, and considering those who are not significantly at-risk, the COVID pandemic is effectively “over.” But not for Washington policymakers who want to vastly expand its powers in a blatant act of overreach.
The Biden administration is so concerned about COVID “variants” that it now risks sending workers to perfect strangers’ homes to harrass them about their personal decisions. That is an aggressive move that may wind up doing more damage to the Biden administration’s public image than it will gain with marginal increases to vaccination rates for a virus whose transmission has effectively has slowed to the point it can barely spread.
