President Biden plans to use five ways to get the unvaccinated, vaccinated.
Today, President Biden announced that the US has administered 300 million shots in 250 days. This includes 90% of seniors and 70% of adults over the age of 27. However, there are still many states that are struggling to reach vaccination goals for immunity.
To solve this problem, President Biden and the COVID Response Team have found five ways to encourage the unvaccinated to get vaccinated:
—Community outreach: President Biden was clear when he said that vaccination sites will continue to wind down over time. To help reach the unvaccinated people, the president, and the COVID Response Team will be reaching out to communities that have low vaccination rates.
—Equity and Equality: to help reassure everyone that the vaccine is safe and effective, the COVID Response Team is sharing more information on how to gain access to a vaccine. How? By offering 42,000 local pharmacies that will answer your questions and administer your vaccine without an appointment.
—Vaccinations at healthcare providers: many people are hesitant on receiving the vaccine until their healthcare provider can administer it. To aid in this issue, more family-care providers will be receiving vaccines to encourage their patients to get vaccinated. Biden and his administration are hoping that this will increase vaccination rates with children between the ages of 12-18.
—Meeting people where they need to be met: the Biden administration said that they will intensify their efforts in making sure to give as many vaccinations as possible to all states and communities in need.
—Reaching out to employees: many employees struggle to find time to receive the vaccine. When they do find the time, they worry that they will not recover fast enough to get back to work on time. The Biden administration is working to set up vaccination sites at places of work. He is also making it a priority to allow employees PTO time after receiving the shot.
During a COVID briefing, President Biden said that everyone should continue to receive the vaccine. It’s free, safe, and effective for all.
“Do it now. For yourself, and the people you care about. Do it for your neighborhood and for your country,” he said. “It sounds corny, but it’s a patriotic thing to do.”
Now is the time to receive your vaccine. If you are concerned about receiving the vaccine, it is important to contact your healthcare provider to receive the facts you need on the effectiveness of the shot. By receiving the vaccine, we will be able to continue to increase our immunity to COVID-19.
