Biden wonders whether to impose coronavirus vaccine
WASHINGTON – Democrat Joe Biden wonders if he would demand that all Americans be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Biden said at a city hall-style event in Philadelphia on Thursday that it would depend on the reliability of the vaccine.
He says it “should have a very positive impact and how you can positively affect 85% of the American public,” and that he would likely receive the vaccine if he met those criteria.
Biden says we “should talk” about making the vaccine mandatory, knowing that it is difficult to apply. But similarly, he says, it is difficult to apply a mask warrant, although scientists suggest they are slowing the spread.
“You can go to each governor and put them in a room,” he said. “A president’s words matter, whether good, bad or indifferent, they matter.”
