Biden Announces New Mandatory Vaccine Measures Implicating 100 Million Americans
Vaccine hesitancy in the US, around the globe, exists in the plenty. As a result more and more coercive measures are being implemented to push people to get vaccinated. This time by U.S. President Joe Biden.
The new mandates announced September 9th requires all employers with more than 100 employees to mandate their workers become fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The new requirements could apply to as many as 100 million Americans, many of whom have probably already been vaccinated, but many who haven't as well. This is quite significant as it pertains to nearly two-thirds of the American workforce.
"We've been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us."

Is Biden's quote true given the unclear science behind whether variants emerge from vaccinated or unvaccinated people?
Workers who refuse will be required to be take a COVID test once a week, and companies that do not comply could face thousands of dollars per employee if they don't comply.
Prior to this move Biden also signed an executive order requiring all government employees be vaccinated against Covid-19, with no option of being regularly tested to opt out.
As of now, just over 53 per cent of all Americans are fully vaccinated, including almost two-thirds of the adult population, according to CDC data.
There will no doubt be a great deal of backlash and lawsuits generated as a result of this new measure. A common theme throughout this pandemic to push for greater vaccine uptake has been to dehumanize the unvaccinated, effectively encouraging citizens to take issue with one another.
Various health professionals, scientists, academics, and many citizens, have been quite vocal as to why they are vaccine hesitant. What's unfortunate is that these reasons are rarely acknowledged within the mainstream, where the usual tactic seems to be picking a weak argument for vaccine hesitancy and displaying that as the main reason all are citing. That said, while some cite false information as their concern, many are bringing forth reasonable concerns, yet are being silenced.
Unbalanced mainstream coverage is leaving much of the masses with an unclear picture of what is going on during this pandemic, affecting decisions left right and center.
If Biden wishes to get to 70 percent vaccine coverage, perhaps this is how you do it.
