Biden Moves The Goalposts Again

Medical experts were floored after Biden said that the US is going to need to vaccinate 97% of the population to get back to normal.

Biden moved the goalposts as he received his booster dose of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

“I think we’ll get awful close. But I’m not the scientist,” he said. “I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can’t go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem,” Biden said.

Biden didn’t pull that number out of thin air, a White House leak reported that the 98% number came from Dr. Fauci.

 

Medical experts are floored because Biden’s claims make no sense.

“I would be surprised if the right one were as high as 97-98%. I’m not sure where that estimate is coming from, or which advisor/agency is coming up with it,” Dr. John Moore, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Cornell University told the Daily Caller. “We will never get to 97-98% vaccination in the USA, even if we’re only talking about adults. So wherever the president’s number comes from, it’s purely aspirational.”

“The estimates [for the necessary vaccination rate] are about 85%, which means that almost all eligible for the vaccine now need to take it,” said Dr. Ali Mokdad, Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Washington.

Dr. Amesh Adalja, Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, told the Daily Caller. “Herd immunity is not necessary for control to be achieved. The goal is not to eradicate or eliminate cases, but to shift cases to a mild spectrum of illness through vaccination. If high risk people are protected against severe disease, I think the most meaningful goal has been achieved.”

“Achieving the highest vaccination rate possible should be something we strive for, but the most important people to be vaccinated in terms of decreasing the morbidity and mortality of the infection are those at high risk for serious disease.”

Biden is doing all the wrongs things, a recent poll shows that Biden has lost public trust on COVID. In the graph below you’ll notice the switch, it occurred the same time Biden announced a vaccine mandate.

Biden continues to make all the wrong the decisions.
