Biden says the number of Americans who are not vaccinated is ‘unacceptable’


President Biden said Thursday that the number of non-vaccinated Americans was “unacceptable”, but that his administration’s vaccine requirements for federal employees and private employers were “working” to ensure that more individuals get shots to protect against Kovid-19.

During Thursday’s remarks at the White House, the president addressed the “progress” of his administration “in the fight against the virus.”

“We are making progress nationally. In the last six weeks, the number of daily cases has decreased by 47%, by 38% in the hospital,” Biden said. “Over the past two weeks, much of the country has improved. Case rates in 39 states and hospital rates in 38 states are declining.”

However, the president said there were “a large number of people who are still unacceptable.”

“Now is not the time to leave. We need to do more.”

“First, we need to do more to vaccinate the 66 million non-vaccinated people in America,” he said. “It’s essential.”

The president outlined the vaccine requirements he brought out in the summer. Biden signed an executive order last month that requires all workers in the executive branch to be vaccinated against Kovid-19. Biden signed an order for businesses with more than 100 workers to mandate coronavirus vaccines.

“They’re working,” he said. “The Department of Labor will soon issue an emergency rule to enforce vaccine requirements for companies with 100 or more employees.”

He said: “Every day we see more and more businesses implementing vaccination requirements and increasing data shows they are working.”

Biden said vaccination rates for businesses and organizations that implement requirements “are on average 20% or more, more than 90% of the number of vaccinated employees.”

“Let us be clear, vaccination requirements should not be another issue that divides us,” the president said. “That is why we continue to fight the misinformation out there and the companies and communities are setting up. They are also stepping up to deal with this misinformation.
