It’s winter and so people are, predictably, getting sick. That tends to happen when it gets cold: people get the sniffles and might have to stay home and have some chicken noodle soup and Gatorade for a day or two.
But now Biden is using the seasonal trend of rising cases to push the vaccine on Americans, saying that they need to go get the jab booster.
That came during the December 15th press conference, when Dr. Jha kicked things off by fearmongering over the recent uptick in Covid cases, saying:
As expected, we’re seeing COVID rising across the country this winter. And while COVID isn’t the disruptive force it once was, we are focused on ensuring that the U.S. is prepared for this winter no matter what the virus throws at us.
As you know, we have the tools, we have the infrastructure, and we have the know-how to manage this moment. And that means protecting people, preventing hospitalizations and deaths.
And the key is this: We don’t want this winter to look like last winter or the winter before. And our winter COVID-19 preparedness plan helps us do just that. So how do we do that?
She then used that data about Covid cases to insist that Americans go get the jab, saying:
First — and you’re not going to be surprised to hear me say this — the most important thing Americans can do is to go get their updated COVID-19 vaccine right away. Now, you heard this from Dr. Fauci just before Thanksgiving; you heard this from me. And I will repeat again: The updated COVID-19 vaccine is your best protection against the version of COVID we’re fighting right now.
Second, a critical component of our winter plan is making it even easier for Americans to access the tools that will protect them this holiday season: vaccines, tests, and treatments.
After describing how the administration would be working with states to deal with getting more jabs out there, Dr. Jha then returned to demanding that Americans get the jab, saying:
Now, before taking your questions, let me close with this: We don’t want this winter to look like last winter or the winter before. And it doesn’t have to. What’s different is that we have an updated vaccine that targets a version of the virus we’re fighting. But we need people to get that vaccine. It’s free and widely available.
We — what’s different this winter compared to last winter is we have highly effective treatments that are widely available if people get sick. But, obviously, we need doctors to prescribe them. We need people to get them.
It’s winter. People get sick. But of course, Team Brandon wants to use fearmongering over seasonal fluctuations to push the jab on Americans when everyone other than the most fearful few are very done with worrying about Covid.
