President Joe Biden laid out a comprehensive plan on Tuesday to help Americans navigate a tough winter facing the Omicron variant, but he also made an impassioned plea for all eligible American to get vaccines and boosters.
“For the folks who aren’t vaccinated, you may think you’re putting only yourself at risk, but your choice is not just a choice about you,” Biden said during a speech from the White House. “It affects other people — you’re putting other people at risk, your loved ones, your friends, neighbors, strangers you run into. And your choice can be the difference between life or death. The longer the virus is around, the more likely variants form that may be deadlier than the ones that have come before. Let me say again and again and again and again — please get vaccinated.”
