After falling short of its Fourth of July goal of having 70% of the adult population vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has announced plans to implement a door-to-door campaign, multiple outlets report. The effort, pitched during a Tuesday press conference, also comes amid concerns about such a mass effort and the effectiveness of the vaccine against COVID-19’s new Delta variant.
“Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood and often times door-to-door—literally knocking on doors, to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” Biden said.
How the administration intends to accomplish this remains unclear. “You don’t just give up just because you haven’t reached every single person,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. “We’re going to continue to apply what we’ve seen have been the best practices over the past several months.'”
Reactions to the proposed vaccination push were swift. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, expressed his opinion via Twitter, “How about don’t knock on my door”?
How about don’t knock on my door.
You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose.
Why is that concept so hard for the left? https://t.co/Fkv3kzNh6S

The government now wants to go door-to-door to convince you to get an “optional” vaccine.
