President Joe Biden on Thursday championed COVID-19 vaccination requirements, determined that the roughly 67 million unvaccinated American adults must get the shot even as he acknowledged that mandates weren’t his “first instinct.”

He had ruled out such mandates before taking office in January, but they now are a tactic he feels forced into using by a stubborn slice of the public that has refused to be inoculated and has jeopardized the lives of others and the nation’s economic recovery.

“There is no other way to beat the pandemic than to get the vast majority of the American people vaccinated,” Biden said in suburban Chicago at an event promoting the requirements. “While I didn’t race to do it right away, that’s why I’ve had to move toward requirements.”

Biden says the Labor Dept. will soon issue his rule to require all companies with more than 100 employees to ensure their employees are vaccinated or submit to weekly testing and says a new report released Thursday has proved that vaccine requirements are working.

President Biden on enacting vaccine mandates:

“We’re making sure healthcare workers are vaccinated because if you seek care at a healthcare facility, you should have the certainty that the people providing that care are protected from COVID and cannot spread it to you.”

BIDEN: “When you see headlines and reports of mass firings, and hundreds of people losing their jobs, look at the bigger story…United went from 59% of their employees [vaccinated] to 99%…”

Despite his mandate, Biden implored more businesses to require employee vaccinations on their own. “I know these decisions aren’t easy but they’re an example, a powerful example. Get vaccinated.”

  1. But yet this lowlife dog has thrown the southern border wide open and allowed every sick illegal bum to waltz in here with every disease and Illness imaginable! No Covid test, no vaccine, no mask. That would be racist. Just come right in and contaminate American citizens. Biden/Psaki have blood on their hands.

  2. Saying this, while the number of fully vaccinated people contracting covid has been skyrocketing!

    The vaccine doesn’t work in 40% + of the vaccinated population. This madness will only end when Hashem decides….

  3. Joe is something else.
    Legit.
    What he is saying, in other words, is that the reason it’s fine to take freedom away from thousands of people to the tune of mass firings is that it works — because, takeh, you see that vax rates are way up.
    Idiot.
    The excuse for tyrannically enforcing your will is that in the end your will is followed…?
    Ummm, what?

  4. We know Biden didn’t write this speech and we’re pretty sure he doesn’t even know what he said. But whoever wrote the speech is either the dumbest person in the world or the smartest person in the world but he thinks we’re all idiots

  5. yet they also keep claiming that vaccinated people can still spread Covid and can still get sick, which is why they are keeping mask requirements in place — and should we ask now how it was that they previously claimed if you wore a mask you wouldn’t get sick, yet many people wore masks and got sick.

    The best way to undermine you authority is to order people to do things, state the reason for the order, and then have the facts contradict you.

    The government’s credibility would be better if from the start they has been less bossy about masks, hadn’t declared millions of people to be non-essential and therefore unworthy of being employer, always acknowledged that 90% of those who get Covid do not get seriously ill (rather than issuing misleading statistics to make it seem that getting Covid meant your life was in danger) and admitted from the start that the vaccine while not effective at preventing the disease, significantly reduced the chance of become seriously ill.

  6. Why do the protected
    need to be protected from the unprotected
    by forcing the unprotected
    to use the protection
    that didn’t protect the protected in the first place?
