(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Joe Biden has caused another public uproar by telling a reporter he plans a new taxpayer-funded COVID-19 vaccine and that all Americans must get it.
Biden announced his new coronavirus vaccine plan while answering journalists’ questions at Lake Tahoe, where he is still vacationing at a billionaire’s luxury mansion.
You can watch the video of his remarks further down this post.
He made it clear that he might require that everyone take the new vaccine regardless of one’s COVID-19 vaccination status.
“Mr. President, can you say anything about the upsurge of COVID cases and the new variant?” asked a reporter.
“Yes, I can. As a matter of fact, I signed off this morning on a proposal we have to present to the Congress, a request for additional funding for a new vaccine that is necessary, that works,” Biden replied.
“And, tentatively, not decided finally yet, but tentatively, it is recommended that… it will likely be recommended that everybody get it, no matter what they’ve gotten before,” the president added.
A 30-second video of the exchange was shared on social media, including by the Republican National Committee, sparking angry reactions by GOP supporters and conservatives.
In 2022, the Biden administration asked Congress for $9.25 billion to fight COVID-19, but Breitbart News points out the request was turned down.
A report by the Associated Press said US officials expected a new vaccine updated with one version of the omicron strain called XBB.1.5.
It noted that such a new vaccine would depart from “today’s combination shots, which mix the original coronavirus strain with last year’s most common omicron variants.”
Breitbart previously reported that in September, Americans will likely be urged to get new COVID-19 booster shots, with Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax working on the XBB update.
That will occur a year after President Joe Biden stated in a television interview that the coronavirus pandemic was over.
Last year, he called on Americans to take coronavirus vaccine boosters, with at least one additional annual booster shot.
“If you’re fully vaccinated, get one more COVID shot. Once a year. That’s it,” Biden declared in a speech from his imitation White House video set while getting his fifth coronavirus vaccine dose.
