The Biden administration announced Tuesday that in the coming weeks federal workers will be sent to the homes of unvaccinated Americans as part of its effort to get more people vaccinated.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the administration will be seeking out unvaccinated people to educate them on the vaccine’s safety and accessibility.
During the daily White House briefing, Psaki said that they will be targeting communities for “door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need on how both safe and assessible the vaccine is.”

The regime is stepping up efforts to get Americans vaccinated after falling short Biden’s July 4th goal of getting 70 percent of adults to have received at least one vaccination shot.
Only 47 percent of Americans are reportedly fully vaccinated despite an abundance of the vaccine.
“We believe that we need to continue to press to get more people in the country vaccinated,” Ms. Psaki said. “These programs will continue.”
She told reporters that there is no federal mandate planned, though some universities and employers are issuing vaccination requirements.
“We leave it up to them to make that decision,” Psaki said.
Many states are considering legislation, or have passed laws that prohibit employers from mandating vaccinations or prohibit businesses from requiring proof of vaccine status.
Joe Biden echoed Psaki’s message during an event on the federal COVID-19 vaccination program at the South Court Auditorium of Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
He said federal rapid-response teams will be sent to ZIP codes that are seeing large case counts, and that they would test and trace cases to an effort to isolate the outbreaks.
Biden stated that the regime would be putting “a special focus on five ways to make gains in getting those of you who are unvaccinated vaccinated.”
“Now we need to go community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oft times door-to-door, literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people [who need to be?] protected from the virus,” he said. Biden also said that his team will push pediatricians to vaccinate children ages 12 to 18 ahead of the school year, even though the risk-benefit ratio does not support vaccination in that age group.
