This past Tuesday, old Uncle Joe’s administration issued statements that they have taken steps to launch out “strike forces” that are seeking to go out into local communities to help with vaccination efforts around the nations. The administration stated that these efforts would be “door-to-door.”
These statements spring up in the wake of the administration failing to reach its goal of forcing over 70% of the country to be vaccinated by July 4th, despite the fact that Uncle Joe took office already in possession of multiple vaccines already having been developed and finalized under the previous administration.
“So we had set a goal of reaching 70% of adults,” Psaki stated as she tried to cover her own tail by shifting the finish line by making the claim that the administration met the goal with “adults 27 and older.”
“We’re continuing to press to reach it and we will in the next couple of weeks for adults over the age of 18,” Psaki went on to say. “But our work doesn’t stop there and we are going to continue to press to get 12 to 18 year-olds vaccinated, to continue to work with communities where there’s lower vaccination rates. That’s one of the reasons we initiated these strike forces to go into communities and work with them to determine what they need. To take a localized, specific approach that works with elected officials in communities.”

“If the number of cases continues to trend upward, are there any circumstances under which the White House would reimpose some of those restrictions, as cases tick up, or would that be up to the States?” asked a reported of Psaki later on.
“Well, states are going to have to make evaluations and local communities are going to have to make evaluations about what’s in their interests,” responded Psaki. “And as you know, there are much higher rates of vaccinations in some parts of the country over others and we certainly support their decisions to implement any measures that they think will help their [keep] community safe.”
Psaki added, later on, that while Uncle Joe’s administration had failed to meet its previous vaccination goals, that the administration does not anticipate “implementing new additional national measures” currently.
These statements spring up from Psaki come after Old Uncle Joe stated, over the past weekend, that the COVID-19 pandemic no longer controlled the lives of the American’s lives.
“So today, while the virus hasn’t been vanquished, we know this, it no longer controls our lives, it no longer paralyzes our nation and it’s within our power to make sure it never does again,” Stated uncle Joe this past Sunday. “And for that, we can thank the scientists and researchers, the educators, and all the other frontline essential workers, like many of you here today. You became the light to see us through the darkness, I hope you know that you, the American people have been part of one of the most remarkable achievements in American history.”
