White House defends door-to-door vax campaign

The White House Wednesday sought to clarify its new door-to-door coronavirus vaccine push amid fresh criticism from the right that the home visit approach is government overreach.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki stressed Wednesday that no one from the federal government will be showing up at Americans’ doors mandating coronavirus vaccinations. Rather, the personal visits President Biden announced Tuesday are designed to share information on vaccinations as the White House aims to still reach its Fourth of July goal of having 70% of the adult population jabbed.

What we’re trying to do here at the federal government is protect the American people and save lives,” Psaki told CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday.

The door-to-door push is designed to inform people in less vaccinated pockets of the country about where to get the shot and address their concerns about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, she said, adding that it’s not up to the federal government to mandate vaccines.

“It’s up to every individual to decide whether they’re going to get vaccinated,” Psaki continued.

Amid the administration’s ongoing concerns of a surge of the more contagious Delta variant of the virus, Biden pitched his plan to boost the vaccinated population during remarks he made on Tuesday.

Critics were quick to slam the new initiative on social media, including several GOP lawmakers.

“How about don’t knock on my door. You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?” Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, reacted to the president.
