When the Biden White House first came into power, it set a goal of 100 million Americans vaccinated within its first 100 days in office. President Biden, who has worked hard to claim all credit for the COVID-19 vaccine, is building upon and benefiting from the work of former President Trump.

The Biden administration has since increased its goal of having 100 million Americans vaccinated in the first 100 days to now having 200 million vaccinated within this timeframe. $10 billion dollars will be put into getting people vaccinated, setting up vaccination sites, and other COVID-19 vaccine-related efforts.

According to Newsmax, the Biden White House will be attempting to market the COVID-19 vaccine to conservatives as part of the campaign against “vaccine hesitancy.”

The Truth About Hesistancy Towards the Coronavirus Vaccine

The White House wants as many people vaccinated against COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

Many Americans are willing and eager to get their shots; however, others are not. Reports of adverse reactions to coronavirus vaccines, the rapid timeframe of vaccine development, and perceived attempts of government to force this vaccine on people are each contributing factors of so-called “vaccine hesitancy.”

However, instead of getting to the root causes and concerns of vaccine hesitancy, the Biden administration will just be throwing money at the problem. Reports confirm that the White House shall use online advertising, radio, and TV as a means of promoting the coronavirus vaccine.

Some of the target groups that the Biden administration will attempt to reach are conservatives, football fans, baseball fans, basketball fans, younger Americans, and non-white Americans.

Vaccine Passports in America

This weekend, the nation learned that New York will begin introducing vaccine passports, starting on Friday, April 2.

The vaccine passports will be used for New Yorkers to attend various events, enter certain businesses, etc. In order for this program to work, individuals will have to download an app on their phones and then swipe a particular code to prove they’re either vaccinated against COVID-19 or have taken a negative test.

This is something that many Americans take issue with, especially since New York Governor Cuomo stated that vaccine passports are part of the “new normal.” None of this is conducive to winning over people who are hesistant to recieve the COVID-19 vaccine.
