The Biden administration has announced that they are going to start sending government officials to unvaccinated Americans homes.

The announcement sparked major backlash.
Uncle Joe is coming for ya. I’d make a joke about him getting lost but this is not a joke. The government will be sending officials to your door based on your private health information? SAY WHAT? https://t.co/K5kr9RuXJt

“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?” Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, reacted to the president.
“The government now wants to go door-to-door to convince you to get an ‘optional’ vaccine,” Rep. Lauren Bobert, R-Colo., warned.
“Hell no,” Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell exclaimed.
“A lot of people have big government antibodies. Don’t knock on those doors,” Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., wrote.
“It’s NONE of the governments business knowing who has or hasn’t been vaccinated,” Rep. Andy Biggs, (R-Az) said.
Whoever suggested that the best way to reach remaining vaccine skeptics was to talk about going door to door should be fired immediately. It’s the Beto O’Rourke of vaccine outreach,” GOP strategist Matt Whitlock knocked the Biden administration.
“How will the government know who is vaccinated or not for this kind of targeting?” Daily Wire senior editor Ashe Short asked.
Vaccine education and conversation should be between a doctor and patient, not by a grassroot government door knocker. https://t.co/sowzjO70iu
