President Joe Biden has announced his intention to seek additional funding from Congress for the development of a new COVID-19 vaccine. The President believes that this vaccine may be recommended for everyone, regardless of their previous vaccination status.
During a press conference on Friday, President Biden commented on the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and the emergence of new virus variants. He stated, "I signed off this morning on a proposal to present to Congress a request for additional funding. This funding is crucial for the development of a new vaccine that is deemed necessary and effective." These statements were recorded in the official White House transcript.
Furthermore, President Biden expressed that it is likely that everyone will be recommended to receive this new vaccine, regardless of their prior vaccination history. He emphasized the importance of widespread vaccination efforts to combat the ongoing pandemic.
According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there has been a notable increase of 21.6% in COVID-related hospital admissions from August 6th to 12th, compared to the previous week. This highlights the urgency of addressing the current situation.
It is worth noting that the initial $40 billion funding request made by the White House to Congress did not include funding for COVID-19. Instead, it focused on areas such as support for Ukraine, federal disaster funds, and border security. This information was reported by The Associated Press.
Although the rise in COVID-related hospitalizations remains significant, the numbers are still considerably lower than the peak observed in January 2022, when there were over 150,000 new hospitalizations reported.
Biden's request for additional funding for a new COVID-19 vaccine underscores his commitment to tyranny and never ending control that the Federal Government wants to have over your life.
