Biden Plan May Require 2/3 of American Workforce to Either Get Vaccinated or Weekly COVID-19 Tests
President Biden laid out a six-step plan to control the spread of the highly infectious coronavirus Delta variant and get more Americans vaccinated against COVID-19.
“We have the tools to combat the virus,” he said during a press conference today at the White House. “If we can come together as a country and use those tools… we can, and we will, turn the tide on COVID-19.”

Dr. Henry I. Miller, a senior fellow at the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco, said more effort needs to be made to reach unvaccinated people through public service announcements.
Given that many unvaccinated people lean right politically, Miller also hopes more conservatives follow the lead of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who in March encouraged all Republican men to get vaccinated.
“It would help in particular if more conservatives were to get on that bandwagon. Some have, and that’s been very welcome,” Miller said. “But the conservative media has not been particularly aggressive in doing that. I hope that will change.”
