CV NEWS FEED // The Biden administration announced a plan to send agents to the homes of unvaccinated Americans in an effort to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19.
“We need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door-to-door — literally knocking on doors” to get unvaccinated people “protected from the virus,” President Joe Biden said.
White House Spokeswoman Jen Psaki described the plan as “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.”
The Biden administration faced immediate backlash following the announcement.
“Americans’ health records should not be public information used by Govt to pressure us to make certain decisions, like vaccinations,” tweeted Scott Parkinson.
“So the left wants less policing because they argue it makes minority communities feel less safe, but they’re cool with government vans stopping by the neighborhood to offer free vaccines door-to-door,” wrote Chad Felix Greene.
“Everything costs more. Everything is racist. And now we’re gonna go door-to-door to check your papers,” wrote conservative show host Steve Deace. “If Democrats were purposefully trying to get annihilated in next year’s midterms, what would they be doing differently?”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton responded by suggesting that he would legally fight the planned visits to unvaccinated citizens’ homes in Texas.
In reply to a video of Biden announcing the door-to-door plan, Paxton wrote: “Not on my watch!”
