Biden Berates Americans Concerned Over Vax Mandates: 'What's the Big Deal?'

If you've got a legitimate religious or medical reason not to get a two-dose (or three dose...or four dose...) COVID vaccine, if you want to be able to make your own medical decisions free of coercion, or if you're simply concerned that the federal government has decided it can force you to get a shot you don't want, Joe Biden has one question for you: "What's the big deal?"

"Everybody talks about freedom to have a shot or have a test. Well, guess what? How about patriotism? How about making sure you’re vaccinated so you don’t spread the disease to anybody else? What about that? What’s the big deal?” Biden rambled in a video posted to social media Tuesday.

Well, Joe, the big deal is that COVID vaccines have thus far proven much less effective than first believed at keeping people from catching the virus (though studies suggest that those who are vaccinated are at a lower risk of serious illness, hospitalization, or death). In fact, Moderna recently suggested that some at-risk persons may require not only a booster to the standard two-dose vaccine regimen, but may now need a fourth shot to increase their immunity to the disease.

And the same vaccine that hasn’t stopped people from catching COVID certainly hasn’t stopped them from spreading it to others.

Given the fact that multiple lotteries and government giveaways, threats of job loss, forced testing and getting kicked out of social spaces in places like New York City haven't worked to convince hesitant people to get a shot whose effectiveness is constantly being called more and more into question, I'm not sure simply repeating "what's the big deal" is going to be the winning argument there, Joe.
