We will not stop until we have beat this pandemic.
President Biden during an interview with ABC News on Tuesday told people from Central America to stay in their "town or city or community" instead of coming to the United States, adding, "I can say quite clearly: Don't come over".
He said that while touring a site with Vice President Kamala Harris, a nurse had said that "each shot was like administering a dose of hope", and that behind those 100 million shots administered are "millions of lives changed when people receive that dose of hope". I have a right as an American, my freedom to not do it.' Why don't you be a patriot?
In a Monday White House event on coronavirus relief, Biden stammered, "So I urge - I urge all local docs and - and ministers and priests and every - to talk about why - why it's important to get it - to get that vaccine, and even after that, until everyone is in fact vaccinated, to wear this mask". "Now is not the time to let down our guard". "While millions of people are vaccinated, we need millions more to be vaccinated".
This also comes as the US House of Representatives last week approved the Senate-passed version of Biden's Dollars 1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, called by him as the "American Rescue Plan".
Biden delivered his remarks hours after the White House confirmed that it would be sending a combined 4 million doses of vaccine to Mexico and Canada.
President Biden said on Thursday that his administration would reach its initial goal of administering 100 million shots of the COVID-19 vaccines well ahead of his initial 100-day benchmark.
The White House said just seven million of the AstraZeneca doses are ready for shipment. He said that if vaccination rates continued to rise as he expects them to, Americans will be able to safely attend small gatherings for Independence Day.
Still, as states rollback mask mandates and begin to loosen restrictions, he cautioned against letting up too quickly.
