Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky on Friday suggested that the Biden administration may be looking into a federal vaccine mandate.
In an interview on Fox News Friday, Walensky was asked if she supported such a vaccine mandate, to which she said it's something she “thinks” the administration is “looking into.”
“You know, that's something that I think the administration was looking into. It's something that I think we're looking to see approval of from the vaccine,” Walensky said.
“Overall, I think in general I am all for more vaccination. But, you know—I have nothing further to say on that except that we're looking into those policies. And, quite honestly as people were doing that locally, those are individual local decisions as well,” she continued.
The Hill has reached out to the White House and CDC for comment.
The comment comes as discussions of vaccine mandates accelerate due to an increase in coronavirus infections fueled by the delta variant.
President Biden has directed federal employees and onsite contractors to show that they are vaccinated or submit to weekly virus testing. The president said Thursday that he’d like to see private companies and state governments mandate vaccinations, as well.
New York City, California and a handful of private companies have introduced vaccine mandates in recent weeks, but the White House signaled earlier on Friday that a national COVID-19 mandate was not under consideration.
White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters “a national vaccine requirement is not under consideration at this time.”
but someone at the White House said they were not
So totalitarian of them. I assume they’ll unleash the American version of the STASI on us.
It’ll be a cold day in hell before I do that.
They want an uprising on their hands, just keep pushing.
The Natl Guard and police are vastly outnumbered and can take only so much attrition before they are ineffective.
Unless Biden plans on nuking everyone who resists.
I wonder if the CDC boob has once again gone rogue without WH consent.
Only in my cold, dead arm.
Welcome to the jungle Rochelle.
Have a nice day.
My body, my choice.
They’ll put everyone who doesn’t comply in concentration camps.
This is just a precursor to the Great Tribulation and the anti-Christ. Conditioning people to be controlled and look how well it is going. Just plain evil.
Also it’s not a vaccine so they would be lying not that it would stop them.
Someone pulls Biden’s strings - the WH pulls Walensky’s strings. Where does it end?
No wonder Biden stammers and stutters and stumbles. He doesn’t know from one day to the next what he’s supposed to BELIEVE or SAY!
On the bright side, just think of all the refrigerator magnet videos y’all could make…………
No they won’t.
They’ll just tighten the squeeze. Want to use banking services? Well, you’ll need the jab.
Need to buy food at the Grocery store? Sorry, need the jab.
Need a job? Sorry, if you want to work, you’ll need the jab.
They don’t need to use force. They can just apply the financial screws until people have to choose between feeding their families and submitting. Some will have the resources and the will to resist, but millions will not.
There won’t be any going out in a blaze of glory.
They’re going to need more.
Very good....hadn’t thought of it but we do get buried every evening with those commercials. It’s amazing where they come up with the names of the drugs and diseases. I particularly like the commercials that state “don’t take this if you’re allergic to ????” - how on earth would anyone know?
“...at this time”.
this woman is 1A on the clown list, just below the number 1 clown, #FascistFauci
