Joe Biden urged all Americans to get fully vaccinated then boosted against COVID Tuesday; claiming the national health crisis is “still a pandemic of the unvaccinated” despite growing data from the US and international community.
“There is no excuse — no excuse for anyone being unvaccinated,” Biden said. “This continues to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated. So we got to make more progress.”
“Omicron is a very transmissible, transmissible variant, but much different than anything we’ve seen before,” Biden said. “You can protect yourself, and you should protect yourself, quite frankly. Get vaccinated, get boosted. There are plenty of booster shots. Wear a mask while you’re in public.”
“Many of you will, you know, you’ll experience severe illness in many cases if you get COVID-19 if you are not vaccinated,” Biden said. “Some will die, needlessly die. Unvaccinated are taking up hospital beds and crowding emergency rooms and intensive care units.”
