The Biden administration has moved beyond “science” and reason. Medical experts, some health officials, and even MSNBC contributors are starting to scratch their heads.
Medical experts were stunned after Biden said that the US is going to need to vaccinate 97% of the population if we want to get back normal.
“I think we’ll get awful close. But I’m not the scientist,” he said. “I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can’t go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem,” Biden said.

Medical experts are shaking their heads and believe that Biden’s plan doesn’t make sense.
“I would be surprised if the right one were as high as 97-98%. I’m not sure where that estimate is coming from, or which advisor/agency is coming up with it,” Dr. John Moore, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Cornell University told the Daily Caller. “We will never get to 97-98% vaccination in the USA, even if we’re only talking about adults. So wherever the president’s number comes from, it’s purely aspirational.”
“The estimates [for the necessary vaccination rate] are about 85%, which means that almost all eligible for the vaccine now need to take it,” said Dr. Ali Mokdad, Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Washington.
Dr. Amesh Adalja, Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, told the Daily Caller. “Herd immunity is not necessary for control to be achieved. The goal is not to eradicate or eliminate cases, but to shift cases to a mild spectrum of illness through vaccination. If high risk people are protected against severe disease, I think the most meaningful goal has been achieved.”
“Achieving the highest vaccination rate possible should be something we strive for, but the most important people to be vaccinated in terms of decreasing the morbidity and mortality of the infection are those at high risk for serious disease.”
There is a lot of evidence that Biden’s plan isn’t going to work. Denmark’s population is 87% vaccinated but reported 5,120 new COVID-19 which is the highest 24 hour increase on record. South Korea, one of the most vaccinated countries in the world, reports 5,266 new coronavirus cases, which is also the highest 24-hour increase on record.
Recently, Biden imposed more mandates to “fight” the omicron variant and even people over at MSNBC think Biden is nuts. Charlies Sykes, contributor at MSNBC commented on a post (that has now been made private) detailing Biden’s proposed mandates and called them “nuts.”
Fully vaccinated. Negative test… but still quarantined and subject to fines?
