Following the exact plan passed down from the Trump administration, President Biden was more than happy enough to announce that all 50 states have seen decreases in COVID-19 case numbers. Thanks to the vaccine and distribution plan, many Americans have already received at least one dose of the vaccine. But while Biden flaunted case numbers as a testament to his presidency, he also gave a grave warning to those who are still hesitant about getting vaccinated. 

Talking to the American people on Monday, President Biden expressed gratitude for all who have done their part in fighting the coronavirus. Still not giving credit to former President Donald Trump, Biden went on to warn people, claiming they will “end up paying the price” for not being vaccinated. 

While Biden didn’t express as to what “price” they will pay, he was sure to place the blame of COVID-19 surges on the unvaccinated. “I can’t promise that will continue this way. We know there will be advances and setbacks and we know that flareups could occur. But if the unvaccinated get vaccinated, they’ll protect themselves and other unvaccinated people around them. If they do not, states with low vaccination rates may see those rates go up, may see this progress, reversed.”

After clearing his name from any future setbacks, Biden really pushed his vaccine agenda by warning citizens of the dangers of not conforming. “Ultimately, those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price. The vaccinated will continue to be protected against severe illnesses, but others may not be if you’re not vaccinated.”

Are you embarrassed to have Joe Biden as America's "President"?

While the Biden administration hopes the scare tactic will push more people to get the shot, some went to Twitter to express their opposition. One user said, “I’ve come down with COVD, and have fully recovered since then. I see no reason to take the vaccine, especially when it’s the least deadly outbreak compared to others spanning 200 years, and segregating vaccinated from non-vaccinated is a violation of their Constitutional rights.” 

Another voter couldn’t help but point of the hypocrisy in Biden’s words.  “If trump had said this, there’d have been cries for impeachment and tyranny. I’m not saying you gotta be a trump person, or a biden person. But at least recognize the hypocrisy and pavlovian conditioning the media is putting you through.”
