The U.S. government's COVID messaging was in disarray on Friday night, as the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that federal vaccination mandates were being considered - and then tweeted that they were not.
Earlier on Friday, Dr Rochelle Walensky, the director of the CDC, said that a federal vaccine mandate was being considered.
Several hours later, she tweeted: 'To clarify: There will be no nationwide mandate. I was referring to mandates by private institutions and portions of the federal government. There will be no federal mandate.'
Her backtracking came amid concern at the way both the CDC and the White House is communicating the COVID strategy to the public.
Joe Biden on Friday night warned Americans that new restrictions were coming, as the Delta variant causes COVID-19 caseloads across the country to soar.
The president, leaving the White House for a weekend at Camp David, was asked whether new rules were likely to be introduced.
'In all probability,' he said, without expanding.

They will just require and/or push all employers for mandatory vacs instead
any private company with federal contracts or lose the contract, a tax increase for those that don’t (ie a COVID tax) , etc etc etc
Ohhhhh. Oh, yes. That is MUCH clearer. Lying sac of carp.
It’s called being handled.
They've had more than enough time to collect the data.
Exactly. This is NOT about public health, it's about power over the masses.
Someone said the “quiet part” out loud before the illegitimate regime was ready.
That’s pretty much it. If they’re actively talking a out in any context, they’re just waiting for their opportune moment to do it.
Science can be backtracked? Interesting.
Which is the classic definition of fascism.
They cannot be considered as being serious about stopping covid until they close the borders and stop letting infected illegal aliens pour into the country unvetted,
That’s right. Fascism pure and simple.
Stop making sense!!
For a narrative of why this is not a vaccine, the gain of function crowd’s stated objective, and medical facts about masks and social distancing, described as informative and “likely the most unvarnished truth that gets posted to these threads,” see reply 9 on this FR post.
There is a law that makes it extremely difficult for the military to out you once you reach 18 years service. Congress passed this long ago to keep the service from screwing people out of their retirement. I will be interested in seeing how this turns out.
All the doctors I see at the VA told me straight up, they will leave before taking this unproven vaccine. That’s how I made up my mind.
If you feel the vax is right for you, you should take it. As for me, right now, I do not trust my government.
The name of The White House should be changed to Delta House. We are being ruled by the flunkies from Faber College.
DON’T BELIEVE IT FOR ONE SECOND.
They are worried too much opposition is building. So by the time they do it. Then it will be very difficult and will fail.
So they are pretending they are nothing doing this.
It’s a lie. Get with your State governments and shut this thing down now.
You can see it happening around the world in places like Australia.
Reminds me of that song and dance routine in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. She did The Sidestep.
The right hand doesn’t even know there is a left hand…
Since 99%+ of the people dying of Covid in the USA now are unvaccinated, persuasion by reasoning alone is possible and is the proper way forward.
The media can make it well know that Trump, Pence, Biden, Harris, Pelosi and her House Democratic teammates and Schumer and his Senate Democratic teammates are all fully vaccinated. 100%.
Professional ballplayers and community leaders can appear on TV to persuade minority holdouts.
